With KOF XV, a number of characters who died return to life to compete. SNK’s been gradually releasing short stories that explain how things happened ahead of the new tournament. The latest goes into the KOF XV Team Ash backstory, though much of it hints at mysteries surrounding Kukri and a new character.
The first half of the KOF XV Team Ash backstory is all about Kukri. It explains what his life was like and why he might want to revive someone. It then explains how Ash was coincidentally revived. But before Kukri’s past can be further explored, Ash shares footage ahead of the tournament of Dolores. Kukri has an unexpected reaction when he sees her.
As a reminder, both Dolores and another newcomer will be on the same KOF XV team. She’s on Team Rival with Isla and Heidern. She and Heidern head to recruit Isla because of her unique “hands.” She’s known for using Sacred Earth Arts.
KOF XV will appear on February 17, 2022 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. Its Omega Edition will be available for the PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X in North America and Europe.
