The King of Fighters XV gets advanced strike system in new update

The King of Fighters XV

SNK Corporation has announced a new gameplay system for The King of Fighters XV via a forthcoming update.

The new update, launching on January 30th, adds the new “Advance Strike” system.

Here’s a rundown on the new system, plus a new trailer showing it off:

“Advanced Strike” is an attack that is strong against throwing and hitting, and is a system that specializes in attacking more than “Shutter Strike”. Activation consumes 0.5 power gauge, but 0.5 power gauge is restored for both hit and guard. When hit, you will be knocked down and cannot be passively attacked, making it easier to attack.

Also, unlike “Shutter Strike”, there is a hit judgment for the throw during the “Advanced Strike” action. When an attack occurs, the opponent will fall to their knees, allowing for a follow-up attack. Please use “Advanced Strike” as a new offensive method that allows you to attack more aggressively than before.

The King of Fighters XV is available now on Windows PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. Check out our review for the game!
