According to SNK, the game is being pushed back due to the covid-19 situation in Japan, where a number of regions—including Tokyo and Osaka—are still under a state of emergency.

The spread of infections within the country has impacted the development timeline, explains SNK, adding that in order to release a game that will satisfy players, it was necessary to change the 2021 release date.

The King of Fighters XV will now be released during the first quarter of 2022. SNK asked for understanding regarding this delay.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Take your time with it SNK, ensure its good. Character reveal so far seems to better than the “God what happened to it” KoF XIV

I would be nice to see KoF as EVO regular again.
