The King Of Fighters XV is the latest installment in the fighting franchise, featuring a huge roster of fighters, and in addition to numerous popular, returning KOF characters.

The King of Fighters series is back six years after the release of KOF XIV with a great sequel that will undoubtedly live up to the fighting legacy the franchise has carried since its first release in 1994.

The King Of Fighters XV continues the KOF series’ legacy with its iconic 3-on-3 team battles.

Different teams have different stories and endings.

SNK Corporation is releasing the Team South Town DLC for its fighting game The King Of Fighters XV (KOF XV) on May 17th.

DLC characters Geese Howard, Billy Kane and Ryuji Yamazaki from the SNK hit Fatal Fury return to The King Of Fighters XV as Team South Town.


Geese Howard is the overseer of the Howard Connection and a behind-the-scenes superpower of South Town. Skilled in the ancient Japanese martial arts, he specializes in countering his opponents' attacks with devastating throws. A charismatic villain, he exudes an overwhelming presence. (CV: Kong Kuwata)


Billy Kane is a staunch follower of Geese Howard and the second man in the Howard Connection. He fights with an extendable staff that has an impressive reach to keep his opponents at bay. Billy is also known as the "walking deadly weapon" due to his hot-blooded personality. (CV : Masaki Masaki )


Ryuji is a lonely outlaw who made his name as an underground broker. He is also one of "Orochi's Eight Hakkesshu", but he only lives for his own benefit. At this tournament he appears to have been hired by the Howard Connection for a specific purpose, but what that is is anyone's guess. (CV : Tsuguo Mogami)

Each character comes with an EXTRA DLC costume!

Special bonus EXTRA costumes for Geese Howard, Billy Khan and Ryuji Yamazaki are included. Matches against friends are even more fun in these iconic costumes!

On May 17th, all KOF XV characters will be rebalanced

Coinciding with the release of Team SOUTH TOWN, there will be an update to adjust game balance for all characters. The purpose of customization is to strengthen the characters and their overall performance. Even if some techniques are toned down, this is offset elsewhere. A new KOF XV gaming experience awaits.

In addition to the already available Team GAROU (3 characters), OMEGA RUGAL and the upcoming Team South Town (3 characters), six more DLC characters will be released in 2 teams by the end of 2022. Together with the 39 characters of the main game, the total number of fighters increases to 52.

Songs from The King Of Fighters Neowave are added to DJ Station for free, which allows players to select their favorite songs as BGM during battles. And here, too, many more songs will follow in the future, so keep your ears open!

The King Of Fighters XV is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC at $59.99/€59.99.
