Get ready to brawl it out with some fighters new and old when KOF returns, as SNK has released a brand new character trailer for The King of Fighters 15 — which introduces us to a new character in the form of the sleepy pillow holding martial artist named Meitenkun!
Check out trailer below courtesy of SNK.
As a sleepy head fighter who is both underestimated as he is unpredictable, Meitenkun may just be the kind of new challenger that KOF players new and old will want to test out. He fights similarly to another child like KOF character in Bao — the mysterious child prodigy who first appeared in KOF ’99 and teamed up with Athena Asamiya and her Psycho Soldier team.
Here’s the character’s description courtesy of PR Times Japan.
