KOF XV will carry the series to even greater heights! 2021 marks the year KOF will return!

KOF XV continues the KOF series legacy with its iconic 3 on 3 team battles. Different teams have different stories and endings, so be sure to check out how each one unfolds!






Born into a rich family and raised by his Japanese father and American mother, this shooting star takes fighting to a whole other level. His slender frame provides an excellent medium which enhances his electrostatics, and combining that with his chiseled legs (no doubt from years of shoot boxing experience), his kicks hit like bolts of lightning.
However for this tournament, his friend and rival, Kyo Kusanagi, all but forced him into this position where he has to watch over both Shun’ei and Meitenkun.

Though young, Shun’ei is a master manipulator of illusions. However, all’s not fun and games as his parents disowned him the moment mysterious hands began to form around his body. Luckily, he fell under the wing of legendary martial arts master Tung Fu Rue, where he learned how to come to grips with his new-found powers.
After the defeat of the strange being known as Verse, Shun’ei continued his training in an effort to better control his powers within. He enters the tournament with his friend Meitenkun to further push his abilities to the limit.

With pillow in hand, this sleepy young fighter is a master of the hidden martial arts technique, Hyakkyokuminminken, or Eight Extremities Slumber Fist. The family he knows today is his mentor Tung Fu Rue and fellow disciple/best friend Shun’ei. He is considered by many to be Tung’s secret weapon, as the extent of his explosive power and technique is a mystery to all.
