It's been a minute since the next DLC team for The King of Fighters 15 was first unveiled, but now we can finally see the powered up Orochi trio in action.

SNK has released the official gameplay trailer for Orochi Chris, Orochi Shermie and Orochi Yashiro in Team Awakened Orochi.

Although they are based on already existing characters in KOF15, the new Orochi variants come packing their own unique move sets based on their boss appearances in The King of Fighters '97.

Orochi Yashiro is the first one to come out and play in his new Heavenly Kings attire, and he trades out most of his big punches to become a grappler.

Many of his previous specials like the Museibu Daichi throw and Unaru Daichi slam are brought back along with some new tricks up his sleeve.

Orochi Shermie gains the ability to control electricity which she can emit from her strikes and kicks, and her new Climax Super sees her zap herself with purple lightning before shooting it through her foot at the opponent.

Finally, Orochi Chris can manipulate purple flame similarly to Iori, but we unfortunately don't get to see the big god himself make an appearance using the boy as a host like some fans were hoping.

Like the previously released Team South Town, the Awakened Orochi gang will also come packing additional costumes to pick from their classic designs.

Interestingly, SNK did not provide a specific date for their release, but the next batch of DLC is apparently still on track for an August launch.

There is currently no word either on whether the new KOF update next month will include a fix for the game's broken matchmaking system, which has been making it difficult for many players to find opponents online for months now.
