The King of Fighters XV Demo Comes to PS4 and PS5

It will now be easier for PS4 and PS5 players to try The King of Fighters XV before buying it, as SNK announced a new demo. The PlayStation Store trial is notable for the number of characters. 15 people from the full roster are present. You can’t go online with it, but someone can take part in offline Versus matches or test out the Training mode.

Here’s the full list of who will be available to use. New characters Dolores and Isla will be playable. The only teams where all three members are playable in the demo are Hero Team, Rival Team, and Sacred Treasures Team.

  • Athena Asamiya (Super Heroine Team)
  • Benimaru Nikaido (Hero Team)
  • Chizuru Kagura (Sacred Treasures Team)
  • Chris (Orochi Team)
  • Dolores (Rival Team)
  • Heidern (Rival Team)
  • Iori Yagami (Sacred Treasures Team)
  • Isla (Rival Team)
  • Kula Diamond (Krohnen Team)
  • Kyo Kusanagi (Sacred Treasures Team)
  • Mai Shiranui (Super Heroine Team)
  • Meitenkun (Hero Team)
  • Ryo Sakazaki (Art of Fighting Team)
  • Shun’ei (Hero Team)
  • Terry Bogard (Fatal Fury Team)

SNK also noted this is a self-contained trial. Someone won’t be able to save data, then carry over progress to a full copy of the game.

This comes ahead of more waves of KOF XV character DLC. Kim Kaphwan launched in April 2023. Sylvie Paula Paula, Goenitz, and Najd are also all eventually on the way, with Goenitz being a free character for all players.

The King of Fighters XV is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and the new PS4 and PS5 demo is out now.
