The King of Fighters It is a series of fights that has a lot of identity and that fans love a lot thanks to the characters that have accompanied it in its almost 30 years of history. There is one who earned the affection and recognition of the fans for being the most powerful and unbalanced in the series and today he has just debuted in The King of Fighters XV.
Of course we’re talking about Rugal Bernstei, a dark weapons merchant who originally debuted in The King of Fighters ’94. However, in The King of Fighters XV returned in his Omega Rugal version, who first appeared in The King of Fighters ’95 as a boss and has since become banned in games with friends due to its unbalanced power.

The King of Fighters XV received Rugal and more free content
Despite being one of SNK’s favorite bosses, Rugal was not featured in the later main titles of the series either as a boss or as a playable character. But The King of Fighters XV It is not just any delivery, but it is one that sought to break all expectations and today there is good news for the fans of this fighter, since it is now available for The King of Fighters XV And best of all, it’s part of a free update.
SNK announced this new content weeks ago and it’s finally available today. The update not only includes Rugal as a selectable fighter, but also adds the new Boss Challenge game mode, in which the fearsome Omega Rugal challenges the player in 3v1 combat, but that’s not to say it’s going to be easy, either. that Rugal’s attacks are devastating. In case of being victorious, the user will unlock the Strange Plateau stage, the theme Conclusion R&D -KOFXV ver.- and the Ω Armor outfit for Rugal.

Rugal returned with a few changes to his moveset. He is an easy fighter to use thanks to his long limbs. In addition, he is capable of executing the Banishing Rush, an exclusive attack that previously only bosses could use, apart from the Violent Ray and the Desperate Ray.
It is important to mention that the playable version it’s not the same than the one the user will face in Boss Challenge. In this mode it has a super special move.
In case you missed it: SNK has plans to continue supporting The King of Fighters XV in the following years.
