King has been revealed for King of Fighters 15. A new gameplay trailer has been released to show off what she can do in the upcoming fighter.
As demonstrated in the trailer, King is a performer of Muay Thai. However, King gives a bit of a spin on traditional Muay Thai by adding acrobatic jumps and high kicks to her fighting style.
While most characters in combat games tend to throw projectiles with their hands, King shoots projectiles with a kicking motion. When you do this, she is essentially generating a blue fireball from her foot.
If King has the opponent attached to the corner with his projectile, then she is able to continue the combination at a good distance. This will probably be important for King players below high level.

King of Fighters 15 is currently scheduled to be released sometime in 2021. SNK will likely continue to release new character trailers each week until the release date.
