SNK revealed DLC characters Rock Howard, Gato, and B. Jenet will be added to KOF XV in March 2022 as Team Garou. Team South Town will follow suit and join KOF XV in May 2022, featuring Geese Howard, Billy Kane, and Ryuji Yamazaki. Two more teams will release sometime during the Summer and Autumn seasons, totaling 12 new DLC characters.
Team Garou is comprised of characters that made their debut in the Fatal Fury franchise, specifically Garou: Mark of the Wolves in 1999. This includes Rock Howard, Gato, and B. Jenet. Similarly, Team South Town consists of the main antagonists and criminals of the South Town underworld featured prominently in the same series. Notably, Rock Howard’s biological father and criminal kingpin Geese Howard is leading Team South Town.
Furthermore, SNK uploaded a character trailer that shows off the move sets and abilities Team Garou members will bring with them to KOF XV. The trailer shows Rock Howard using his Chi attacks, while Gato is fighting with energy-infused martial arts. B. Jenet still wears her signature purple poison dress, and even uses her high heels to beat up opponents as a finisher.
