Oda rather worked in a side project, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, a female person driven battling game and a profound spin-off of SNK Gals’ Fighters. In December 2018, SNK uncovered the organization was dealing with The King of Fighters XV, expecting to deliver it during 2020. Feeling the past title had obsolete designs for a 2016 game, SNK Chairman Zhihui Ge said that XV will utilize the Unreal Engine 4 to give a superior show.
They chose to make XV while they were all the while dealing with XIV however just began advancement later Samurai Shodown was finished. At Evo 2019, SNK declared that the game was being developed.

The perished characters returning for XV were picked dependent on fan demands and the point of the program was for it to have a ‘new and bubbly feel’.

With such countless more established battling game heroes being extremely free and combined with a perspective that is unique, Oda feels that Shun’ei being so unique is a consequence of him becoming older and the progressions on the planet changing his esteems for a primary person.
