Mia & Athena Jump Into The King Of Fighters AllStar

Netmarble is bringing in two more characters to The King Of Fighters AllStar as we're getting Mai Shiranui and Athena Asamiya. If you're not entirely familiar with them, both characters come from The King of Fighters Special Signature, with their own special moves and abilities that will be an interesting mix with the way the mobile title is played. We got the details on both characters here from the devs, along with details of what's been added to the game with this particular update.
