SNK, the fighting game developer, is adding a new character to KoF XV. While they are currently working on KoF VIII Global Match, the attention is still on XV. After the recent addition of Duo Lon, the next character to join the roster is Hinako.
A gameplay trailer has been released, giving us a glimpse of how Hinako will play in KoF XV. The trailer showcases some of Hinako's unique moves and confirms that the character will be released on November 14th. With their inclusion before the next SNK World Championship qualifier, Hinako could be a wildcard at future events.
Hinako is not a newcomer to the King of Fighters franchise. They first appeared in KoF 2000 and have made appearances in several titles since then. However, this version of Hinako is still an exciting addition to the game, as they have not been a big feature in 3D KoF games. The transition to the more modern KoF XV has been successful, and the game continues to receive support even years after its original release.
Hinako's arrival in KoF XV adds another dynamic character to the roster. With their unique moves and previous history in the franchise, Hinako brings excitement to the game. As the release date approaches, fans can look forward to experiencing Hinako's gameplay and discovering their potential in future tournaments.
