SNK Postpones KOF XV Announcement


The fighting game community and SNK fans around the world were excitedly looking forward to SNK's previously announced world premiere for The King of Fighters XV tonight. Unfortunately, SNK postponed their announcement (without giving an official reason) hours before the reveal, apologizing and telling fans to stay tuned until a new date and time is confirmed. SNK was also set to reveal new information about Samurai Shodown Season Pass 3, which was also been postponed. Below is SNK's official tweet about the postponement. [UPDATE] The following day, January 7th, SNK posted the reveal trailer for KOF XV and Samurai Shodown Season 3 around the same time it was going to debut yesterday. (Nice recovery roll. Thanks for your hard work, SNK.)

SNK Japan also issued a statement on Twitter. Here's their tweet translated in English:
