New King of Fighters 15 character teaser opens to the door to many possibilities

Is it time to burn it all to ash?

SNK added a new layer to their weekly character reveals for The King of Fighters 15 with Yashiro's silhouette, and that's continuing with a new mystery to solve.

The developer has now released a new teaser image of the next character to be announced which appears to be of a female figure this time — but is it?

Speculation is running rampant amongst the community as to their identity considering there's a handful of possibilities though no one exactly seems to fit the bill.

Going by the currently incomplete teams for KOF15, King appears to be one of the leading candidates with her using similar poses in the past holding her bowtie.

Blue Mary could also potentially fit the bill to join up with Yuri though this character clearly has sleeves — something the grappler seems to be squarely against.

Unless they received a major makeover, this character doesn't look like Yashiro's teammates either, so that leaves the door open to some more interesting candidates with potentially big implications.

The pose on display here is very reminiscent of perhaps the most divisive character in KOF history, Ash Crimson.

KOF14's story ending essentially set up the strong chance for Ash's revival after erasing himself from existence at the end of the prior game, and while the sleeves certainly seem to match up, the hair on the silhouette looks a little too small for what we're used to with the character.

Perhaps the other fighter that may match up best in terms of hair, attire and pose put together would be Whip, and she, like King and Blue Mary, appeared in the last game as well.
