Fans of Omega Rural will be happy because the popular villain will be added as a King of Fighters 15 free DLC character. The fighter will be available later this year for free in the game starting on April 14, 2022. He was a strong boss character in The King of Fighters ’95, and now he’s going to be in The King of Fighters 15. You can view a trailer for him below.
Info from the press release also gives us more info about the character and future DLC plans for the game. You can read the details below.
This dark arms merchant of death once ruled the world’s black market, and was never shy about digging his fangs into any fighter that dared challenge him. Through the power of Orochi, he was given life once again, until a group of fierce fighters brought his reign to an end. Now, due to Verse’s influence, he’s returned to the mortal realm to extract vengeance.
New Game Mode BOSS CHALLENGE added!
