The next edition of the EVO fighting tournament has come to an end. The battles of the best players were not the only attraction of the event. A lot of novelties to the most popular fighting games were also announced during its course. We put them all together in one place.
The King of Fighters XV
During EVO 2019, SNK announced The King of Fighters XV, the next installment in the popular fighting game series. Unfortunately, no specifics have been revealed.
No hardware platforms for the game were provided, but this year's Samurai Shodown is already available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and PC and Nintendo Switch versions are on their way. We expect The King of Fighters XV to be similar.
