New King of Fighters 15 character potentially leaked via screen shot

We're exactly two months out from King of Fighters 15's official release date, and though we've seen a good many members of the game's starting roster, one more may have just leaked.

This character appears on the screen in the background of a particular stage in a screen shot posted by Famitsu. While this isn't a direct confirmation, we've known these screens to depict characters that are in the current fight. Potential spoilers for KOF15 ahead.

The character in question is none other than Kula Diamond, the young but formidable Ice Doll who usually dons a red costume with blue hair.

This sighting is still somewhat curious as both Antonov and Kyo are clearly the two characters in the current fight, but the fact that Kula appears to be on the background monitor does feel fairly telling.

You can take a look for yourself at the screen shot below:

While we certainly can't see all of the character, the trademark hair, upper arm band, and costume seam are fairly telling. Here's an image of Kula as she appeared in King of Fighters 14 for comparison:

The text below the image appears to say "King of Fighters" instead of the usual character name. Contrast it with this image of Meitenkun's display on the same monitor:

King of Fighters 15 is slated to launch with 39 total characters on the initial roster, and thus far only 36 have been revealed. Kula Diamond has been a very popular character in the KOF series since her debut back in 2000, so her potential inclusion in KOF15 does not come as a massive surprise.

If she does indeed represent the 37th, SNK will still have another two more to unveil between now and the game's launch date on February 17, 2022.

The next King of Fighters 15 beta test is set to run from December 17-20, starting at 7 p.m. PT on Friday and ending at 6:59 a.m. on Monday morning.
