KING OF FIGHTERS’ finest join Doomsday: Last Survivors for the ultimate crossover

Since shambling onto mobile platforms, leaving the entrails and limbs of lesser games in its wake, Doomsday: Last Survivors has taken over the world like a particularly contagious zombie outbreak. Set in a world where humanity clings to the final vestiges of existences, IGG’s survival strategy game casts you as a Commander, tasked with building a shelter for your enclave of survivors while protecting them from the walking dead that surround them on all sides.

Beyond base-building, you’ll be out exploring the fog-filled wilderness for resources, come into conflict with rival players, and of course stave off waves of undead that’ll regularly come creeping up to your borders.

The game’s gone from strength to strength, with a recent collaboration with Emmy-winning composer Brandon Campbell for their first theme song. Now,  to celebrate its one-year global launch, Doomsday has teamed up with one of the longest-running fighting game franchises in the world: none other than SNK’s THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’97.

The limited-time collaboration will run from March 2 to April 30, and include a number of events, special items, and merch to dig into. 

First up, there are few people better to have on your side in a zombie apocalypse than KING OF FIGHTERS’ legendary ninja, Mai Shuranui, who you’ll be able to recruit as a hero into your campaign. But you’ll need to earn her loyalty first.

To get the alluring ninja on your side, you’ll be drawing for puzzle fragments, which you use to complete puzzles in exchange for Mai Shiranui Fragments, Hero Armaments, Shelter Decorations, Chat Emojis, and more. Collect enough Shiranui Fragments, and the iconic fighter is yours to recruit!

Lucky draw events on the in-game lucky draw web page through March and April will also give players the opportunity to win a beautiful custom art DLS x KOF ’97 folding fan, as well as a customized DLS x KOF ’97 Alienware Desktop PC

There’s more. Over on the Special Event website, you’ll be able to participate in a number of events, each with their own unique rewards. The Anniversary Roulette will give players one chance every day to spin the roulette wheel by tapping the heart icon to send well wishes, and another by sharing the event page. Rewards include an Amazon Gift Card worth $1,000 and in-game items. 

In Anniversary Homecoming, meanwhile, invite inactive players to return to the game, which will grant both you and the returning player generous rewards and spins of the Lucky Wheel for a chance to win an iPhone 15 Pro Max, Amazon Gift Cards, and other great prizes. 

So there’s no time to lose. The fight starts now, and if you want the backing of KING OF FIGHTERS ’97 as you try to survive Doomsday’s apocalypse, you’ll need to move fast. So download Doomsday: Last Survivors on PC, Android, or iOS now, and join the game’s community of survivors on Facebook and Discord
