For what feels like the first time in forever, SNK finally gave the internet a new silhouette teaser to pore over for the next DLC character in The King of Fighters 15.
Fans of the series were of course ready to jump into action to fill in the blanks with their own sketches and meme guesses as to who’s coming next to the fighting game.
There is of course quite a few people out there going for what seems to be the obvious pick in Hinako, but there’s plenty of others going a bit deeper down the rabbit hole to show off what they want.

We’ve got sketches of the likes of Oswald, a very crude Sieger, a somewhat flamboyant Ryuhaku Todoh, and Shion among others.

And then you’ve got people taking the more meme’d approach, and admittedly, seeing Jay Kay from Jamiroquai gave me an unexpected laugh.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Street Fighter 6 Director Takayuki Nakayama got around to making his own sketch though it seems like the community has him pretty much covered.
Whoever is coming will be joining up with the rest of the Season 2 cast for KOF15 in Shingo Yabuki, Kim Kaphwan, Sylvie Paula Paula, Najd and Duo Lon as well as Goenitz, so it seems we may need another lady to even things out.
SNK hasn’t given out an exact time for the trailer drop, but it’ll probably come around 7 p.m. PDT tonight, October 9.
Let us know what your favorite guess is in the comments and if we missed any good ones.
