There weren’t only game-related announcements during the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable 3. Merchandise came up as well. Specifically, SNK announced that Bitmap Books will release The King of Fighters: The Ultimate History, which will include art and insight into the series. This book will appear worldwide in May 2022.

Few details about the The King of Fighters: The Ultimate History book came up during the presentation. However, a few things were clarified. First, the announcement showed the official art. Kyo Kusanagi is standing in front Iori Yagami on the cover. It will go over the series’ history, discussing entries and showing behind the scenes art. It will be 544 pages.

We already had an idea that this book is on the way. Back on March 16, 2022, the Neo Geo Collector Twitter account leaked an image announcing it. That video included a few pictures of its pages. It also included an official website address, though that isn’t live yet.

This wasn’t the only KOF announcement during this presentation. Two came up for KOF XV. The game will be getting a paid Team Pass 2 with six more characters and free Omega Rugal DLC.

Bitmap Books will release The King of Fighters: The Ultimate History sometime in May 2022.
