KOF XV Kim Kaphwan Gameplay Reveal Trailer


A longtime veteran of the Fatal Fury and KOF series, Kim Kaphwan was a default selectable character in The King of Fighters XIV but curiously did not appear in KOF XV's Season 1 roster. The TaeKwonDo expert will finally return as a paid DLC character in KOF XV's Season 2 in Spring 2023. Tonight, SNK dropped Kim Kaphwan's full reveal trailer for The King of Fighters XV, displaying a familiar moveset and animations to what Kim had in the prequel. However, Kim's new Climax Super Special Move in KOF XV where he channels a fiery phoenix is based on his super move from the Real Bout series (also appearing in KOF2002: UM).

Kim Kaphwan's DLC will include his new KOF XV "black and red" outfit in addition to his traditional old school TaeKwonDo uniform that fans will recognize from previous titles. Both of Kim's outfits are pictured in the first official screenshot directly below.



SNK hasn't yet specified a release date for Kim but the Season 2 DLC character will become available sometime in Spring 2023. The King of Fighters XV is currently available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Windows 10, and Steam. Keep it here on Fighters Generation for updates and continued coverage.
