Netmarble and SNK have added a new update to The King Of Fighters AllStar today as players can fight against EX Kyo Kusanagi. Yes, you now have an upgraded version of the character added to the paytable roster, as this one has been based on the KOFXV version. The team has tried to balance him while giving him a slight edge as his attributes include a Leader Skill with an ATK increase of 60% at max. As well as giving him a Special Skill with an Attack/Defense increase of 6% for 13 seconds when his skills are activated. What's more, in PvE he can reset the cooldown of Active Skills, decreasing the cooldown by 80% for 13 seconds. We have more details about the update below along with changes to SS Iori Yagami as the update is live.
