The gameplay trailer for Joe Higashi in King of Fighters 15 was dropped at its usual time earlier today. Joe is known in the King of Fighters universe for being the Muay Thai champion.

Like Iori and Meitenkun, Joe Higashi wasn't among the first batch of revealed characters when information about King of Fighters 15 first surfaced. Along with Benimaru, Shun'ei, K', Leona, Mai and Kyo, there are now nine characters that have been officially revealed for the upcoming fighter.

Fans were recently surprised to see that Team Hero was made up of Shun'ei, Meitenkun and Benimaru, mostly because Benimaru has traditionally been paired up with Kyo. The timing of Joe's trailer implies that he may have been paired with Iori.

Joe Higashi has made appearances in both the Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters where he's often present for comedic relief.

As mentioned previously, Joe is an expert practitioner of Muay Thai, which awarded him the nickname of "The Young Champ of Muay Thai."

Check out his trailer below:
