The demo version has launched with only limited game modes and characters, but it will still serve its purpose and let users quickly test out the various mechanics and combat features in the game.

Features 15 playable characters, including series favorites and fresh newcomers alike! Offline versus and training modes available. Step into the arena today and get a taste of the latest and greatest KOF!” Reads the official site.

This new demo incorporates 15 playable characters, blending a hearty mix of iconic fighters from the franchise and newer characters that first appeared in The King of Fighters 15. The playable characters in the demo are Shun’ei, Meitenkun, Benimaru Nikaido, Isla, Heidern, Dolores, Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, Chizuru Kagura, Terry Bogard, Ryo Sakazaki, Chris, Mai Shiranui, Athena Asamiya, and Kula Diamond.

As noted above, the King of Fighters 15 demo features only two game modes that are enough to understand the core mechanics of the game and judge whether it is worth buying or not. You can enjoy the long list of characters for free in the single-player Versus mode or test out the varied combos by mashing the buttons in the Training mode. There is no way to play the game online in the demo version, and it will strictly be a single-player venture.

The release date for the playable demo is listed to be April 20, which means it should already be rolled out on the PS4 and PlayStation 5 platforms. It is worth noting that SNK has decided to skip a free demo version for The King Of Fighters on Xbox Series S and Series X and PC on Steam and Epic Games Store. While the reasoning behind it has not yet been clarified, we can expect it to only be available on Sony’s current and last-gen consoles.

It is worth noting that the data garnered in the free demo will not transfer to the full game if the player decides to purchase the entire The King of Fighters 15 experience. The demo can be bagged for free from the PlayStation store online. The game is a relatively smooth experience that serves as a perfect entry for newcomers and veterans alike. The recent patches have been fixing the lingering issues that have haunted the title since launch.

The King of Fighters XV is a notable single-player and multiplayer fighting entry developed by SNK. It came out on February 17, 2022, and immediately became among the best entries in recent years. The title’s story revolves around a tournament known as King of Fighters that continues from the last game after the defeat of Verse in The King of Fighters 14. The installment is available for Xbox Series X and S, PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
