SNK Corporation have released a new gameplay teaser trailer for The King of Fighters XV, focused on Shun’ei.
Shun’ei is the series current protagonist, who first appeared inThe King of Fighters XIV. Born in China, he was abandoned by his parents after he developed strange powers. He was then taken in by Tung Fu Rue, training his powers as his last disciple.
Over the course of XIV, it is learned that Sun’ei’s powers come from an interdimentional being Verse. This grants Shun’ei telekinesis to control both fire and water, manifesting as two giant claws.
