In the past few hours, SNK has released a official press release in which the company announced that the launch window for The King of Fighters XV was officially moved from 2021 to first quarter of 2022.


To deepen the reasons that pushed SNK to postpone the release of the title was the same producer of The King of Fighters XV, Yasuyuki Oda, who explained that the development timeline has suffered several delays due to the forced smart-working imposed by the pandemic of Covid-19 which is still making its effects felt on Japanese territory. Precisely because the SNK team wants to make sure that the title is published at its highest quality, it was therefore decided to marry the launch window, in order to present a product as refined as possible for all fighting game fans.
