SNK made the dreams of many KOF fans come true when they announced the King Of Fighters: Destiny Animated Series. Besides the cool looking trailer and some screenshots there was not a whole lot known about the series until now. FGCnow has compiled all the tidbits of news from different sources regarding this upcoming animated series and is presenting them to you, in one place, below:

  • The King Of Fighters Destiny is the first season of planned long ongoing series of animation.
  • The first season will contain 20 episodes.
  • The first series will adapt the story of the first Fatal Fury game but will link its events to the King Of Fighters franchise. So Kyo will still be the primary character even though a big chunk of the season is about Terry and Andy’s revenge against geese and the first ever KOF tournament organized by the latter.
  • Rugal will appear towards the end of the series which will probably lead to the next season that will focus on the KOF94 game
  • The series animation will be also used for their upcoming The King Of Fighters world MMO.
  • Over 20 characters from the KOF lore will appear, including: Terry, andy, Joe, Kyo, Geese, Ryo, Robert, Yuri, Clark, Billy Kane, Benimaru and Goro.
