SNK has revealed another three characters for The King of Fighters XV, ahead of its release in February. The latest additions include Heidern and Dolores, who together with recently announced character Isla, make up ‘Team Rival’.
Known for his appearance in Metal Slug, Heidern made his King of Fighters debut in KOF '94, and is the commander of the Ikari Warriors, as well as father to Leona Heidern. Using a brutal martial art of his own making, Heidern uses his cutting hands like knives to carve through opponents.
Dolores, meanwhile, is a new character for KOF XV, a psychic from the African Hinterlands, able to teleport and summon rocks to crush her enemies. Finally, Whip is the latest character to be revealed, the 34th of 39 characters that will make up the roster, another Ikari Warrior who first appeared in KOF '99.
Unsurprisingly, a lot of Whip's moves use a whip. You can see for yourself in the video for Whip, as well as trailer for Dolores and Heidern, below. The King of Fighters XV launches for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on 17th February 2022.
