In what’s going to be the biggest SNK slug-fest since The King of Fighters 2002, the 14th installment to the franchise will feature 50 fighters; with four additions to the roster announced today.
The majority of the newly revealed combatants are returning faces including Maxima, Clark, and series sweetheart Terry. The ‘new’ fighter is King of Dinosaurs, with many fans speculating that it’s actually the franchises lucha libre Tizoc in a different get up.
SNK has released official bios for the fighters, re-published below.
- King of Dinosaurs: An evil and mysterious “heel” (a.k.a. a “rudo” in lucha libre) wrestler who wears a tyrannosaurus mask appears. Is he about to devour all the veteran fighters? Human or beast? Who hides behind the mask?
- Clark Still: After a bit of a “diet,” this Ikari Warrior returns to the ring as well. Could it have been thanks to Heidern’s Boot Camp? Mastering a variety of grappling moves, Clark is back and ready to break some backs.
- Maxima: The mechanized body returns to battle. Powerful enough to be a huge Guard Point, he is a true marvel of NESTS Technology.
- Terry Bogard: “Get in the Ring!” The original Hungry Wolf and favorite of Fatal Fury fans can’t be missed.
Two new stages were also announced in the newest trailer: the Guanajuato Dynamite Ring set in the townscape of a historical Mexican city and a Derelict Church.
The King of Fighters 15 is set to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, as of yet no release date has been mentioned.
