The first announcement for Baki: King of Souls appeared in January 2022. Little information appeared then. A trailer also came out in February 2022, though with little actual gameplay information. According to ryokutya2089, the game may be a team-based one. However, it is unknown as to whether you are teaming up with other players or if you are controlling multiple characters like how you would in Marvel vs Capcom.

So far, 90,000 people have pre-registered for the game. This means that when the game actually launches, players will get 2,500 gems to put toward their pulls. If 120,000 players pre-register, the developers will give away 4,000 gems. Lastly, at 150,000 people, players will receive a gacha ticket that will guarantee an SSR character.

Baki: King of Souls is based on the manga and anime series Baki the Grappler. It follows the story of Baki Hanma, who wants to test his skills against opponents in deadly, no-rules, hand-to-hand combat. The original anime series came out in 2001, with Baki and Baki Hanma available for streaming on Netflix.

Baki: King of Souls will come out on mobile devices in Japan in March 2022. There is no news regarding an English localization of the game.
