KOF XV is excellent. However, as an unconditional fan of the saga started on Neo Geo in 1994, the absence of Kim Kaphwan from the original roster left a bitter taste in my mouth.
SNK has just remedied this. The second Season 2 DLC character to join THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV (KOF XV) in the spring of 2023 will be my favourite character, Kim Kaphwan.
Long-Awaited Addition: Kim Kaphwan
KOF XV Season 2 DLC KIM KAPHWAN trailer
Kim Kaphwan, a character with an unwavering sense of justice, is a force to be reckoned with. His mastery of taekwondo allows him to dominate his opponents with unparalleled kicking techniques.
His excessive diligence is a thorn in the side of Luong and the man she loves: Kim’s free-spirited master, Gang-Il.
Free DJ STATION Update: Customize Your BGM
To commemorate Kim Kaphwan’s arrival in Season 2, KOF XV’s DJ STATION gets a free update that adds eight staff roll songs from KOF-related titles. Players can now customize the game’s music to enhance their gaming experience.
Want to test Kim Kaphwan? It will be playable for the first time at Evo Japan on April 2! Don’t forget that a paid spectator ticket is required to enter EVO Japan 2023 on that day.
As a die-hard fan, I’m thrilled to see Kim Kaphwan back in action, and I know other fans will share my excitement!
Praise for KOF XV: A New Chapter in the Franchise
Released in 2022, KOF XV is the latest instalment in the acclaimed King of Fighters series and has been praised by fans and critics alike. The game takes the franchise to new heights with improved graphics and smooth gameplay.
KOF XV features a diverse roster of over 39 characters, each with a unique fighting style and ability. Series stalwarts, including Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, Mai Shiranui and Terry Bogard, are present, alongside newcomers such as Isla and Dolores. The arrival of Kim Kaphwan makes the roster even more exciting.
The game retains the 3-on-3 team battle format, allowing players to assemble their best teams and engage in intense, strategic battles. KOF XV also features a story mode, which explores the history and relationships between the characters while providing a link to the single-player mode. The bosses are still cheated, as SNK knows how to do, but without matching Omega Rugal.
KOF XV’s online modes have greatly improved, with smooth and stable connections thanks to net code rollback. Players worldwide can now compete against each other without any noticeable lag or problems. The game also features classic modes for the genre, such as time attack, survival and training.
As a fan of the series, KOF XV is a true success, and the arrival of Kim Kaphwan only adds to the excellent opinion I had of the game. KOF continues to evolve, offering a solid alternative until SF6.
