There’s a new KOF XV team story, and this one helps another group’s backstory make more sense. This time, it goes over why K’, Maxima, and Whip are all working together ahead of the next KOF game and tournament. Given all three often work together and with Heidern, that they’re partners isn’t surprising. However, the latest short story offers insight as what’s going on with Krohnen and Kula as well.
Prior to the events of KOF XV, it seems K’, Kula, Maxima, and Whip were taking part in their usual activities from KOF XIV and beyond. They were looking for former NESTS survivors on behalf of Heidern. However, there was some altercation that upset Kula before the events of this game. Both K’ and Maxima were somewhat insensitive, which led to Kula running off. Which, as the Team Krohnen backstory revealed, meant she ended up “kidnapped” by Angel and Krohnen. Since Krohnen has NESTS ties, it means Team K’ is off to catch him and “rescue” Kula.
KOF XV will appear on February 17, 2022 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. Its Omega Edition will be available for the PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X in North America and Europe.
