King of Fighters XV’s Duo Lon DLC Release Date

Duo Lon will release as DLC for King of Fighters XV on September 12. He was playable all throughout the Tales of Ash story arc—King of Fighters 2003, XI, XII, and XIII—but sat out from King of Fighters XIV. This makes Duo Lon’s return in KOF XV his first 3D appearance, and he looks absolutely fantastic. His stretchy pokes and teleports have translated beautifully into 3D. The update on September 12 will also include a balance patch, although the exact changes won’t be officially revealed until the day of. 

There is a small change between Duo Lon in the Tales of Ash games and his upcoming DLC release: Tsunehito Maruo doesn’t reprise his role as Duo Lon’s voice actor. The Silent Assassin will now be voiced by Keisuke Komoto, whose video game and anime roles have mostly encompassed side characters up until now.
