The January issue of Kodansha's Shonen Sirius magazine announced on Saturday that SNK's The King of Fighters game franchise will get a new manga on Kodansha's Magazine Pocket app on January 1. Kyōtarō Azuma is drawing manga, titled The King of Fighters: A New Beginning.

The teaser image mentions the characters Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, K', Ash, and Shun'ei.

SNK released The King of Fighters XIV, the latest installment in the franchise, for PlayStation 4 in August 2016. SNK then released the game for PC via Steam in June.

The franchise is inspiring a Chinese CG-animated adaptation. The series will have 24 episodes, and is streaming on SNK's YouTube channel in Japanese with English subtitles. The 17th episode began streaming on Thursday.

When SNK announced the animated adaptation last year, it also announced a live-action adaptation.
