As always, Ash Crimson is still using his awesome Pyrokinesis ability to deal a lot of damage on his opponents in this new The King of Fighters XV trailer and to his fire-wielding peers Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami. His moveset seems to be the same ones from previous games with some new ones including his new special move. He is also wearing this stylish new red coat and dons these fashionable nail arts on each finger.
Ash Crimson was the hero of the previous titles of KOF from 2003 to KOF XIII. From the story, it seemed Ash disappeared from existence, but he has now appeared again for some reason. He did not appear in KOF XIV though.
It seemed SNK did not need to tease him any longer as he was part of the previous gamescom 2021 trailer. It revealed all of the protagonists of the KOF series, Kyo Kusanagi, K’, Ash Crimson, and now the new Shun’ei. K’ still does not have his own character trailer, but it could be coming next week and probably more characters will be revealed later.
The King of Fighters XV will launch next year, February 17, 2022, on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
