SNK Corporation have have released a new gameplay teaser trailer for The King of Fighters XV focused on Terry Bogard.
The poster child for the series and SNK Corporation, he has appeared in every Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters games. An orphan along with his brother Andy, he was taken in by Jeff Bogard. He began to train in martial arts after his adoptive father was killed by crime boss Geese Howard.
His fighting style combines his own father and his master’s teachings, along with various styles he learned across the US; including boxing, kung fu, kickboxing, street fighting, and karate. Tung Fu Rue, the aforementioned master, taught him Hakkyokuseiken; allowing him to command his own body’s chi energy alongside his fighting techniques.
This manipulation of energy manifests in his signature moves; Power Wave, Power Geyser, Burn Knuckle, Crack Shot, and Buster Wolf. While endlessly cheerful and friendly, those with true malice in their hearts are sure to learn why he is called “The Legendary Wolf.”
Unlike prior trailers, we see more gameplay than usual, with Terry facing off against Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi.

As previously reported at the game’s announcement, the game is currently being optimized, with certain features being “brushed up.” An animated promotional short by Masami Obari (the 1990s Fatal Fury movies) is set to be released soon, along with a new trailer next week.

Terry has also recently appeared in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, along with staring in a now removed advert for mobile game SNK Allstar where he performed a drive-by butt smacking of several female characters. SNK Corporation pulled the advert as it “was not up to our ethical standards.”
