This week's big King of Fighters 15 reveal introduced a series mainstay back into the fold. The acrobatic Muay Thai fighter, King, returns to take down her opponents with her powerful, high-flying kicks.

SNK released a gameplay trailer showcasing what King is capable of in the upcoming iteration of the game, and much like they've been doing, the company shared a follow up that provides more insight into what went into her latest design. Character designer Tomoniro Nakata divulged a couple of quick details about how King's character model has changed this time around.

"KING's 3D model has gone through some tweaks making her far more ferocious and beautiful than her previous iteration," Nakata said. "Also look forward to her older attacks making a big comeback."

Alongside these bits of information comes a slick new piece of artwork featuring King elegantly holding a wine glass. The character is depicted in a detailed sketch standing in front of a city skyline.

Nakata notes that King's older attacks will be making a big comeback here in KOF15. That detail rings true as we see several of her mainstay techniques on display in her gameplay trailer — with some added visual flair thanks to the new game's graphical style.

King of Fighters 15 does not yet have an official release date. If you are excited to play it, though, you can look forward to its launch sometime this year.
