Kula Diamond skates into King of Fighters XV

The King of Fighters XV is about to have a full lineup, with ruthless boxer Kura Diamond as the 38th member.

Kula and her ice-centric moves are revealed in a new trailer this week.In past The King of Fighters series, she was a member of Team K’, where she competed with newcomer Krohnen (mechanically, Krohnen was a shake-Inspired by KOF characters K9999) and Ángel, a former NESTS assassin with a pro wrestling action suit.

It would be rather shocking if a fan-favorite face like Kula didn’t make it into the main KOFXV lineup, but since she’s the 38th character revealed in the confirmed 39 list, taekwondo practitioner Kim, etc. Other mainstays may have to wait for the DLC or miss out entirely. There are rumours about who the final character will end up being, but all we know is that there is only one spot open on a team, and it’s tied with Ash Crimson and Kukri.

The King of Fighters XV is scheduled to release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 17. Those who pre-order it digitally can start the battle a few days early, with an early access period starting on February 14.
