The King of Fighters 15 to be Playable at Tokyo Game Show 2021, New Character Silhouette

  

SNK announced the first playable build of The King of Fighters XV will be showcased two weeks from now at the Tokyo Game Show 2021 (Sept. 30th - Oct. 3rd). A special KOFXV presentation will air on September 29th (9:00pm PDT) with SNK promising to show a rundown of the game system and live gameplay footage for the first time ever. Additionally, Bandai Namco, Capcom, and Arc System Works are also confirmed to be presenting at Tokyo Game Show '21 — although it's not known if they will be showing anything fighting game-related (but it's definitely possible, so stay tuned). The KOFXV demo will reportedly feature 8 playable characters (pictured below) including one of the new female newcomers!
 

 
Below are the two posts from SNK's official Twitter profile announcing KOF XV will be appearing at TGS 2021 in playable form.
 

   
That said, we'll be learning a lot more about The King of Fighters XV's new gameplay mechanics and character movesets two weeks from now at TGS 2021. We'll be sure to post plenty of gameplay from the event!

In related news, SNK also announced a new character reveal planned for today! Below is the teaser silhouette of the upcoming reveal. If I had to guess, I'm thinking there's a strong possibility of this one being returning KOF14 character, Kukri.
[UPDATE] Called it again... and not surprised. Kukri was officially announced.  

 

Keep it here on Fighters Generation for upcoming KOF15 announcements!
