So wait it was not Mr. Big at all?
SNK has had a streak for quite a few weeks and reveals brand new characters for The King of Fighters 15, but they have finally gone back to giving fans a closer look at a series of mainstays that will definitely make people happy.
As I’m sure everyone already guessed from the silhouette this morning, Mai Shiranui is the last character to receive her complete game trailer, although she̵
Like most of the rendered players, Mai players will probably feel at home in KOF15 with most of her moves and special offers appearing to perform much the same as they did in the previous entry – only with a new graphic overhaul.
Many had thought that Mai would be the final member of the Women Fighters Team, but since there was no confirmation at the end of the trailer, as was the case with Hero, Fatal Fury and Sacred Treasures, this probably means that the original group is not few despite all banded together again.
Mai, King and Yuri made up the first women’s team all the way back in ’94, even though they only got to fight a handful more times with the last one coming in KOF13.
The Women Fighters Team has been among those in the series with the most changes between contributions.

With King and Mai as the most consistent members over the years, the apparent rejection probably means that Yuri has a much better chance of being on Team Art of Fighting again with potentially Ryo and Robert – although neither of them has been confirmed at this time. .
It also opens the door for former members to join the ranks again, or maybe SNK will follow the pattern of matching the veterans with a beginner that we just saw in KOF14 with Alice.
May was one of the characters shown in the first announcement trailer for KOF15 where K ‘and Leona remain as the only warriors who have not received the spotlight yet.
