A new The King of Fighters dating sim has been revealed. The King of Fighters for Girls is an otome game headed to mobile devices in Summer 2019. In it, players get a chance to go through a visual novel style experience and get closer to iconic characters from the series. The official website and Twitter account are now open.
In The King of Fighters for Girls, players follow a young woman who essentially finds herself destitute. Fortunately, she takes a job at the same gym where Kyo Kusanagi trains.

This is not the first The King of Fighters spin-off with dating elements. The Days of Memories series, which featured people getting a chance to connect with either male or female characters from The King of Fighters series, first appeared on phones in Japan in 2005. Three Days of Memories Nintendo DS games even appeared in Japan.
Here is the first The King of Fighters for Girls trailer. The theme song, “King of Fire,” is performed by the voice actors for Kyo and Iori (Tomoaki Maeno and Takanori Hoshino).
The King of Fighters for Girls will be available on Android and Apple iOS devices in Japan in Summer 2019.
