King of Fighters XV, already available as a standard or deluxe edition, is getting a third “Omega” edition.
This third edition of the upcoming SNK brawler will, aside from a physical version of the base game, feature assorted digital and physical extras. These include:
- 3 lithographs
- The original soundtrack on CD
- A 119 page artbook
- A special slipcase
- Team Pass 1 (containing two chunks of DLC, Team DLC 1 and Team DLC 2)
- DLC costumes for Terry Bogard and Leona Heidern
That’s good news, if you’ve got the £79.99 asking price to spare. The bad news is that there’s no plastic Terry Bogard statue or, indeed, any kind of “collectible” figurine, which may possibly be against the law. Come on, SNK, at the very least, throw in a cat-sized version of Terry’s hat. But, not, that’s all you’re getting. Shocking, absolutely shocking.
Still, if you’re a hardcore King of Fighters fan there should be something here you can stick on your shelf. You may already have your own collection of KOF memorabilia, given that the series has been going for at least twenty years and some of the protagonists, such as Terry Bogard, have been around even longer.
WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV OMEGA EDITION!!👊
It will launch on 17/2/22 and includes:
– The main game.
– 3 lithographs.
– 119-page artbook.
– Special slipcase.
– Team Pass 1 (Team DLC 1 & 2).

All of which leaves one question.. how do you pre-order it? SNK have yet to confirm which stores will have it, stating that “…some retailers will have it available this week, some the next one.” So far, Amazon, GameStop and Game UK don’t have it available for pre-order, so right now all you can do is keep your eyes out.
The Omega Edition, like the standard versions of King of Fighters XV, will be released next year, February 17th 2022. It’ll be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox Series X|S but not, so far, Xbox One.
