In addition to collecting new characters, you can now also collect special Battle Cards which are themed after these two new additions to The King of Fighters ALLSTAR. The new Battle Cards based on Mai and Athena, as well as three Defense-oriented Set Cards and one new Option Card, are available from the in-game summons.

To coincide with the release of these new characters, Netmarble has also organised some events and upgrades to go live during the next few weeks.

To start, there’s a daily check-in bonus for anyone who logs into The King of Fighters ALLSTAR between now and 11th March. Additionally, there’s also a Score Event running at the same time, which tasks you to clear stages to achieve high scores and obtain special rewards, some of which include Fighter Summon Tickets and Drop Rewards like the Lady Lucky Box.
