News Release

THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV will receive
a major update on January 30 with
“Advance Strike,” a new offensive mechanic.

 

SNK CORPORATION (Corporate HQ: Osaka City, Osaka, Japan; Company President: Kenji Matsubara) will roll out a major update for THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV (KOF XV) on January 30, 2024.

 

Introducing “Advance Strike,” a new system designed for proactive offense!

“Advance Strike” is a great new way to fend off throws and physical blows, allowing for even more aggressive plays than those possible with Shatter Strikes. This new mechanic costs half a power gauge bar to perform, but you’ll regain that half bar on both hit and block.

An Advance Strike causes a hard knockdown on hit, leaving you well placed for more offense. Unlike Shatter Strikes, the move gains a counter hitbox against throws partway through; if it lands while the counter is active, your opponent will crumple to the ground (and be prone to follow-ups). Use Advance Strikes to bring the fight to your opponent like never before!
