This is also the first game in The King of Fighters series to use Unreal Engine 4. Like its predecessors, The King of Fighters XV uses a fighting system involving teams composed of three fighters. The game features a wide variety of online modes, including Ranked Match, Casual Match, Room Match, and Online Training. The story focuses on how Verse, the creature from KOF XIV, has caused mayhem and a woman known as Chizuru Kagura gathers the fighters Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami in order to look after the seal of the snake demon Orochi. The King of Fighters XV is set to launch with 13 teams of 39 playable fighters, with six further fighters planned as paid downloadable content. Team Rival Team Other characters Due to positive response to the marketing of The King of Fighters XIV, director Yasuyuki Oda said in August 2017 The King of Fighters XV was possible, but the company SNK also wanted to focus on other franchises. Feeling the previous title had outdated graphics for a 2016 game, SNK chairman Zhihui Ge said that XV will use the Unreal Engine 4 to provide a better presentation. At Evo 2019, SNK announced that the game was in development. The title's creative director is Eisuke Ogura, who has previously worked as an artist on the series, beginning with The King of Fighters 2001. Most notably, he served as the main illustrator for The King of Fighters XIII and XIV. The director of King of Fighters XIV, Yasuyuki Oda, will serve as the title's producer. During these announcements, the two developers revealed sketches of Shun'ei, Kyo Kusanagi and Benimaru Nikaido, with the former being set to be the protagonist of the new game. In promoting the title, anime director Masami ?bari is making a short anime based on the series. In February 2021, Oda announced on his personal Twitter account that the team is working on implementing an internal rollback-based netcode similar to GGPO for the game. The team aims to improve the gameplay and graphics while also providing a more interesting story than the one from XIV. In June 2021, SNK announced that the game would be delayed to the first quarter of 2022, due to rising cases of COVID-19 in Japan.
