Update [Fri 8th Jan, 2021 05:05 GMT]: Following on from yesterday’s last-moment delay, SNK has now gone ahead with its big announcements.
King of Fighters XV is arriving this year, but platforms have not been announced yet. Keep in mind, the previous entry in the series was exclusive to the PlayStation 4 on console. More info about this game will be revealed next week.
The first two fighters in Samurai Shodown’s Season Pass 3 have also been revealed. First up is Cham Cham (arriving mid-March this year) and will be followed by Hibiki Takane from SNK’s classic fighting game, The Last Blade 2.
