DLC Characters GEESE HOWARD, BILLY KANE, and RYUJI YAMAZAKI team up to fight!

 Geese Howard, Billy Kane, and Ryuji Yamazaki from the hit SNK fighter FATAL FURY return to KOF XV as Team SOUTH TOWN.

 

GEESE HOWARD

Geese Howard is the overseer of the Howard Connection and a supreme power behind the scenes in South Town. He is well versed in ancient Japanese martial arts and specializes in countering opponents’ attacks with devastating throws. He exudes an overwhelming presence as a charismatic figure of evil. (CV: Kong Kuwata)

 

 

BILLY KANE

Billy Kane is a dedicated loyalist to Geese Howard and is second-in-command in the Howard Connection. He fights with an extending staff that has an impressive reach to keep his opponents at bay. Billy is known also as the ‘walking deadly weapon’ due to his hot-blooded personality. (CV:Masaki Masaki)

 

 

RYUJI YAMAZAKI

Ryuji is a lone outlaw who made a name for himself as a broker in the underground. He is also one of Orochi’s Eight Hakkesshu, but he lives only for his own gain. In this tournament, he seems to have been hired by the Howard Connection for a certain purpose, though as to what could be anyone’s guess. (CV:Tsuguo Mogami)

 

 

 

Each character comes with an EXTRA DLC costume!

Special bonus EXTRA costumes for Geese Howard, Billy Khan, and Ryuji Yamazaki are included. Enjoy playing against each other in these iconic costumes.

 

 

 

 

 

On May 17, all KOF XV characters will be rebalanced!

To coincide with the release of Team SOUTH TOWN, an update will be implemented to adjust the game’s balance for all the characters. The purpose of the adjustment is to strengthen characters and their overall performance, so even if some techniques are nerfed, please understand it will be balanced elsewhere. Get ready for a new KOF XV!

 

 

 

13 DLC characters coming in 2022 bringing the roster to a massive 52 playable fighters!

In addition to Team GAROU (3 characters), Omega Rugal, and the upcoming Team SOUTH TOWN (3 characters) available on May 17, there’s 6 DLC characters (2 teams) that will be available by the end of 2022!
Combined with the 39 characters in the main game, a total of 52 fighters will be participating! Please stay tuned!

 

 

 

 

On May 17, music from KOF NEOWAVE will be added to DJ STATION for free!

Songs from THE KING OF FIGHTERS NEOWAVE will be added free of charge to the DJ STATION, which allows players to customize the BGM during a match to their favorite songs. More songs will be added in the future, so please stay tuned.
