SNK has recently revealed The King of Fighters XV KROHNEN character trailer at The Game Awards 2021 with news of an upcoming Open Beta schedule.
At the pre-show announcement, SNK revealed the newest character to join the roster of KOFXV, which is KROHNEN. He has a very strong resemblance to the character K9999 in a previous KOF game and almost has the same color scheme too. His mechanical hand even has the same color as K9999.
KROHNEN has a shape-shifting arm and can take down any opponent foolish enough to get on his way. He has some connection to the secret syndicate known as NESTS.
Aside from KROHNEN, a Second Open Beta for KOFXV is scheduled. This will be held on PS4, and PS5 consoles exclusively and will feature cross-play between consoles. Those who will join can face off in both casual and offline modes. No need to use PS Plus to join in.
Check out the schedules below:
PST: Dec. 17: 7:00pm – Dec. 20 – 06:59am
CET: Dec. 18: 4:00am – Dec. 20 – 3:59pm
JST: Dec. 18: 12:00pm – Dec. 20 – 11:59pm
