Netmarble has added a new update today for The King Of Fighters AllStar as players can now mess around with XV Krohnen. The latest Purple Element/Defense Type fighter comes with a few new options you might enjoy utilizing including a [Extreme] Fighter's ATK increase of 40% and a Critical rate increase by 12%. Along with these, he has a Special Skill with several traits which include immunity to Petry and Darkness. He also can recover 15% of HP when attacked with Ultimate Move, which has a cooldown of 10 seconds, while also immune to DMG for 3 seconds when HP is 30% or less with a cooldown of 12 seconds. And finally, he has 30% chance to become immune to DMG for 4 seconds when attacked with a 15-second cooldown. We have more info about the update for you below as it's officially live.
SS Kyo can now be upgraded to EX (Yellow Element / Attack Type) via the Change Up Kit from the Exchange Shop.
