The King of Fighters XV has been revealing characters rather often for the impending 2022 release. There’s been returning characters like series icons Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami, returns from long-absent characters, and even characters from the last game like Shun’ei are making a return, as well. Another set of returning characters is in order today, as well.
Antonov, the King of Dinosaurs, and Ramon make up Team G.A.W. (Galaxy Anton Wrestling) for the upcoming entry in The King of Fighters, and Antonov comes with his own gameplay trailer to boot. You can watch that below.
About Antonov and His Teammates
Antonov is the sub-boss of the previous King of Fighters entry, XIV, and was the host of that game’s King of Fighters tournament. His gameplay very largely revolved around dealing massive damage in as few hits as possible, akin to a grappler, but not exactly being one. In this game, most of his move list from the prior game has returned alongside him, despite sporting a vastly different costume.
The King of Dinosaurs (trailer below), is a mysterious heel wrestler who wears a tyrannosaurus mask. His true identity is currently unknown. King of Dinosaurs adds a heavy focus on grappling to Team G.A.W., with command grabs, slow movement, and absolutely massive payoff for landing any of his attacks.
And lastly, Ramon. He is an influential luchador (Mexican pro-wrestler) who has been called the “strongest human alive”. Though he always wears a bright smile, Ramón isn’t afraid to tell people how it is. His gameplay heavily revolves around using his agility rather than his raw power and having access to command grabs, almost like a mix between Antonov and King of Dinosaurs. You can view his trailer below.
The King of Fighters XV will be releasing in Q1 2022 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC via the Windows 10 Store, Steam, and the Epic Games Store. You can view the game’s official website here.
