The King of Fighters All-Star boasts fast-paced fighting action, as players battle their way through waves of enemies, giant bosses and rival teams of fighters. The martial arts excitement is paired with cutting edge graphics, bold colors, and lightning-fast animations, plus over 50 fighters to collect and upgrade at launch. The King of Fighters All-Star will deliver a wealth of content and nostalgia for fans of the franchise and offer hours of fun for gamers who are new to the action.​

Other key features of the game include the ability to build a team deck that includes three fighters, three strikers and selected support fighters.

No actual gameplay in the trailer, plus it sounds like the usual gacha formula.

Maybe bring back the rhythm title instead.
