This will be the first team of Season 2
KOF XV has quite an impressive roster. Many characters have been added to the game right on the release day. Then, we got two teams and one boss as DLC for Season 1. Recently, SNK announced the addition of three more cool fighters.
Well, it’s Team Awakened Orochi — and we already have Team Orochi in the base game. New characters are different forms of existing ones. To be honest, this sounds less exciting than getting totally new personalities. And the teaser trailer doesn’t clarify the difference.
KOF XV | Team Awakened Orochi | Teaser Trailer
The Awakened form of Team Orochi was introduced in The King of Fighters '97. Team members come through the transformation Riot of the Blood to resurrect Orochi, the game’s main antagonist.
Team Awakened Orochi joins The King of Fighters XV in August. Perhaps, we’ll get gameplay trailers before the release.
Meanwhile, why not enjoy the top-level matches of this game? KOF XV was part of the recent esports event Combo Breaker 2022.
And also, the game has its tournament at the upcoming CEO 2022.
If you enjoy classic installments of the series, don’t miss The King of Fighters ‘98 — it’s been re-released for the PlayStation 4/5 and Steam.
