Blue Mary announced for The King of Fighters 15

Wednesdays are turning out to be a great day to be a fighting game fan, and one of the top reasons for that at the moment is new announcement trailers that drop every week for The King of Fighters 15.

Since we've reached that time again, SNK has released the newest gameplay showcase for Blue Mary, who is yet another longtime veteran returning to the stage of the big series once more.

As one can expect from the one and only Blue Mary, her uniquely fun striker grappling style is in full swing and is looking pretty flashy and electrifying if you ask me.

Players who enjoyed playing Mary in the previous title should have no trouble picking her back up in the new game since it looks like she pretty much kept everything from KOF14 and can probably do even more wild stuff from the new mechanics.

Speaking of that, this trailer gives us another look at the new mechanic that causes a purple glow, not to be confused with the red and blue flashes, which is really looking like a Roman Cancel from the Guilty Gear series or some other type of combo cancel / extension from burning meter.

Interestingly, Blue Mary is not the final member of Team Women Fighters alongside the presumed Mai and Yuri, so we still don't know who will be rounding them out — perhaps another newcomer like we saw in KOF14 and other previous entries.

As for what team she might be on now, since Fatal Fury is also full, her best bet at this point may be joining up with the mercenaries of Ramon and Vanessa — both of whom were also in KOF14.

Blue Mary first appeared in Fatal Fury 3 before making the jump over to The King of Fighters in '97, so she's been around the block a time or two.

You can check out Blue Mary's reveal trailer below as well as some nice 4K screenshots.
