Last week SNK surprised us by announcing Mai Shiranui unfinished an official team for The King of Fighters XV. Now the Osaka developer has raised the bet for the video of this Wednesday, April 14, 2021, since the bets on who will be the new member of the initial squad of fighters from KOF XV they point – at least until before the new trailer comes out – by Hotaru from the Garou Densetsu or Botan franchise. This latter character has never been playable in KOF and the last time he appeared in a game was in the story of The king of Fighters XIII. So it was quite a surprise to see Shermie from the «New Faces Team» back in The King of Fighters XV
Both Botan and Hotaru have in common the silhouette of the animal, which can be seen in the neck of the silhouette shared by SNK. But we couldn’t be more wrong.
How will Shermie fight in KOF XV?
Shermie’s last appearance in a fighting game was three years ago in SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, a title that did not do justice to his complex system of command grabs, melee pressure and space control with his normal movements. Fortunately, what is seen in Shermie’s presentation trailer reveals how Shermie will fight the second member of the «New Faces Team» in KOF XV.
Shermie was not in a main game of the franchise KOF from the game The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match, which was recently relaunched for PlayStation 4. It is so in KOF XV Shermie will debut in a flagship game in the 3D era story of SNK’s flagship fighting game franchise.
With the arrival of Yashiro Nanakase and Shermie’s debut in the new trailer for KOF XV it’s only a matter of time before SNK reveals Chris, the third member of the «New Faces Team» and the recipient of Orochi’s spirit. Additionally, it must be taken into account that each of the members of this team have their alternate version. So SNK leaves expectations even higher this week.
