Crossplay for King of Fighters 15, Undo for Samurai Shodown and more announced by SNK at Evo


At today’s Evo panel, SNK shared some exciting announcements about The King of Fighters 15 as well as Samurai Shodown.

For The King of Fighters, this includes both short and long-term DLC, such as the release date of the recently revealed Team Awakened Orochi characters, and for SamSho, it’s all about network code.

The developers have taken to the stage to provide some details and screenshots of how the next three Team Awakened Orochi fighters will play, as well as alternate versions of Shermie, Yashiro, and Chris. They also offered a release date for the next team: August 8.

The panel also indicated that it is working on cross-platform play for KOF15, but that it won’t be ready to play until sometime in 2023. Currently, Sony console users can play with each other, but not with Microsoft users. However, this should change in the coming months.

Evo’s biggest shows tend to be on Finals day, and SNK shared that they haven’t shown everything yet this weekend. While we’re very excited to see Team Awakened Orochi in three days, we can expect another new team soon as we have another show planned for Sunday.

Finally, another season of The King of Fighters 15 DLC has been confirmed and more information will be released on Sunday.

Samurai Shodown, released in 2019, has earned a net swipe code to play online on almost all platforms. The developers are targeting Spring 2023 for this update, and it will be available on all platforms except for the Nintendo Switch (due to technical limitations, according to the developers).
