Perhaps a Fighting EX Layer character?

Guest characters in fighting games appears to be a more and more common occurrence in recent years with Mortal Kombat likely responsible for the fairly recent trend which has spread throughout developers and publishers throughout the world.

SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy isn't out until later this week, but NIS America and SNK are apparently still not done announcing characters for the game after revealing Thief Arthur from Square-Enix's Million Arthur series as the title's first DLC character.

There's reportedly more on the way for new characters as well, as SNK and NIS, the game's publisher, teased another new guest character in the way of a silhouette at their PAX West panel this past weekend.

No hints were given as to the character's identity beyond the fact that they will not be from an SNK game, and they likely appear to be wearing gloves of some kind due to their pose in the silhouette.

It could potentially be a character from the Fighting EX Layer / Fighting Layer series since Arika announced that Terry Bogard will be joining Fighting EX Layer as a guest DLC character at EVO 2018. SNK made a similar deal with Square Enix for Thief Arthur, as Square announced that Iori Yagami will be joining their game Million Arthur: Arcana Blood.

A day one patch was also reportedly announced that will include arcade stick support and access to Thief Arthur when SNK Heroines launches on September 7th on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. You can take a look at the silhouette below, and let us know who you think it might be in our comments section.
