Fans of The King of Fighters series will recognize Rugal as one of the more iconic bosses from the series, and someone who has appeared in nearly every single iteration of the game. The trailer shows him grappling his opponents and shooting eye lasers at them. The Boss Challenge mode fittingly coincides with Rugal’s inclusion and will allow players to go up against a more powered-up version of Rugal, who seems to be extremely formidable.
