Samurai Shodown’s Haohmaru, Nakoruru, and Darli Dagger are now available in King of Fighters 15 as DLC. Together, these three form Team Samurai and even have their own story cutscenes within King of Fighters 15.






In addition to these three fighters being added, patch 1.51 has also been released. As such, SNK has released patch notes for version 1.51 of King of Fighters 15.









With Haohmaru, Nakoruru, and Darli Dagger now in the game, the addition of Samurai Shodown music is now justified. Three tracks from Samurai Shodown (likely the themes for Haohmaru, Nakoruru, and Darli) have been added to the game.


Additionally, minor adjustments have been made to Isla, Dolores, Iori Yagami, Chizuru, Chris, Maxima, Whip, Yuri, Geese, Orochi Yashiro, Orochi, Shermie, and Orochi Chris.


Of course, it should be noted that most of the adjustments appear to be bug fixes. It should be noted that none of the listed changes are expected to have a major impact on King of Fighters 15’s competitive meta.
