By Spring 2023, Kim Kaphwan, the leader of the Korean team, will be joining the roster. It will also introduce the cross-play feature that many fans have been waiting for.
Shingo Yabuki is the first Season 2 fighter joining the ever-growing roster of playable characters in The King Of Fighters XV in early 2023. SNK also confirmed Season 2 will see new DLC characters arriving in the game at varying times. Shingo Yabuki will release with balance changes for existing fighters to improve player experience. Kim Kapwhan, on the other hand, will be added to the game in spring 2023, with an open beta test for crossplay across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S-X, and PC launching at the same time. Players on different platforms will be able to duke it out with each other in the arena.
Two more characters are planned as part of Season Pass 2, which are due out in 2023 alongside two new battle stages.
Instead of a hunger gauge limiting the quarter-gear from going absolutely nuts, Sin now has a stamina meter with 3 sections that’ll take a stock every time he performs a follow-up to Beak Driver — which will then automatically refill over time.
Sin has a happy-go-lucky and optimistic disposition, and while he isn’t the most well-spoken and can be cocky at times, he has a big heart and tries to improve his shortcomings one at a time. He feels uncomfortable in orderly situations and is not too good at social dispositions. While his personality that doesn’t look back on what’s done may seem insensitive, his simple and innocent personality can be refreshing.
Sin appears to have a very deep love for his mother, and trusts Sol Badguy (whom he calls “old man”) and looks up to him as a father figure and a mentor. Sin, however, does not seem to get along with his father very well, and would rather call him a “shitty king”. Even so, Sin worries about Ky’s safety despite claiming otherwise. Sin begins to slowly warm up to his father after seeing him in action, coupled with Ky’s apology. It is only after Sin sees Dizzy again, safe and freed from her sealed state, that he finally reconciles with Ky and calls him “Dad”.
Watch the trailer for the Brawlhalla x Avatar: The Last Airbender collaboration, which brings the characters Aang, Toph, and Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender as Epic Crossovers to the mobile 2D platform fighter game. Check it out to see the characters in action. The launch also kicks off the latest Crossover Event, featuring a Western Air Temple-inspired map for free-for-all and 1v1 matches, Momo emote, Cabbage Merchant KO effect, Appa sidekick, and new themed emojis and avatars. Players who log in during the event will also earn “The Tale of Iroh” profile avatar for free. All items will still be purchasable and playable, and the maps will still be playable, after the event ends.
New Characters – New roster additions are incredibly exciting, so we figured we’d give you a bit of a tease of one of the new characters who will be joining the MultiVersus roster in Season 2! Hailing from the planet Mars and sent to destroy Earth with his Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator, Marvin the Martian will soon be making his way to MultiVersus, in yet another fruitless attempt to claim victory. We’ll have more information about Marvin and his kit soon, so hang in there!
New Map – Winter is coming… and along with it, a new map! That’s right, in Season 2 we’re introducing an all new Game of Thrones themed map with all the hazards and pitfalls you’d come to expect from the land of Westeros. Soon you’ll be able to hurl your opponents away from the Iron Throne while humming an all-new remix of the awesome Game of Thrones theme music which has been composed with multiple sections that can transition dynamically depending on what mayhem is taking place in the match. When you play the Game of Thrones map, you win or you… fall off the map.
Network and Latency Improvements – Since the Open Beta launch, we’ve made many optimizations to MultiVersus to improve performance. We recently implemented multi-path network traffic acceleration to improve stability and latency, which will lead to a much improved online experience for players worldwide. This is just the beginning and we’ll be continuing to invest in and improve in this area. This is a priority for us and the team is hard at work at making the online experience amazing!
New Battle Pass – We’re happy to share a little information about our Season 2 Battle Pass which is chock full of new badges, icons/profile icons, banners and taunts for you to unlock and enjoy! Season 2 will boast fun new Character Variants to collect along both the Free and Premium tracks such as Baker Street Tom & Jerry and Astronaut Velma. If Ringouts happen to be your thing, we’re also adding some new additions such as Toxic Explosion and Lava Breath that are sure to demoralize your opponents in the flashiest way possible.
