SNK returned back to their fighting game roots with The King of Fighters 14 back in 2016 and have since gone on to release SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy plus announce a new Samurai Shodown title. Now we know what the developer's next fighter on the horizon is.

The King of Fighters 15 was revealed during an IPO press conference in Seoul, South Korea by SNK, and it is currently slated to release at some point in 2020.

No artwork or visuals were reportedly shown during the presentation aside from the title and a 'coming soon' placeholder, but we now have confirmation that a new game in the fighter series is currently in development along with their other title coming next year.

Samurai Shodown also received an update during the press conference where it was announced that the title will now be coming to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC along with the originally revealed PlayStation 4 release.

An updated release window was reportedly touted as well during the event which showed a graphic stating that the new Samurai Shodown title is scheduled to release during the second quarter of 2019.

This is not an official, public announcement by SNK, however, so some of these listings may not be entirely accurate since King of Fighters 14 is also listed for Xbox and Nintendo systems despite only being on PS4, Steam and in arcades currently — or we could be seeing some new ports of the fighting game coming soon.

SNK's Yasuyuki Oda previously said in November that King of Fighters 14 on the Switch would "definitely be a possibility" if the team could overcome some technical issues with development according to an interview with Dualshockers.

In the same interview, however, Oda said that King of Fighters 15 was not even in pre-production yet and only in early talks within the company.

These slide reveals don't give us much information to go on, so we'll likely need to wait for official word from SNK to learn more about these upcoming fighters from the storied developers.
