Samurai Shodown rollback beta test also coming to Steam
Back at Evo 2022, SNK gave fans a small taste of what they’re cooking up for their latest fighting games, and now there’s more details about what’s coming when.
The developers released a new trailer for The King of Fighters 15 Season 2, which reveals the launch window of their next characters, crossplay beta and balance update as well as a rollback beta dropping for Samurai shodown
As noted by the trailer, it appears we have confirmation that DLC characters in Season 2 will be releasing as individuals instead of a full team like Season 1, and the first to kick off the new year will be Shingo Yabuki in January 2023.
Along with Shingo will come a new balance update to take another swing at adjusting the game’s full roster, but that’s not all fans have to look forward to in the coming months.
Kim Kaphwan is unsurprisingly second in line for the DLC, and he’ll be presumably dropping at the same time as KOF15’s planned cross-platform beta test between PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, Windows and Epic Games Store sometime next Spring.
Samurai Shodown players are also getting a piece of the pie, as a rollback beta test is coming only to the Steam version of the game in January too although the full update will launch on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam and Epic at some point in 2023.
There’s even more characters planned for the second year of KOF15, but it sounds like we’ll probably be waiting quite a while to see who they are at this current rate.
