There’s a new KOF XV story explaining why Team Super Heroine joined the fight. As always, these shorts act as a bridge between KOF XIV and the latest installment. They always feature the characters involved on that team. But sometimes, other folks are referenced too. This is very true in this tale, as Athena, Mai, and Yuri interact with and discuss lots of other fighters as they decide to work together for KOF XV.
The setting for the KOF XV Team Super Heroine story is South Town’s Illusion Bar, where Mai and Yuri are commiserating with King. In fact, they initially had plans for a different sort of team composition. However, other plans got in the way. But by the end of this backstory, Athena shows up with an idea about how their KOF XV team should look.
In addition to the new KOF XV story, there’s a new trailer. This one is for the second open beta test. It shows off the characters available in this round.
KOF XV will appear on February 17, 2022 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. The second open beta will be held on the PS4 and PS5 on December 17-20, 2021.
