SNK announced their plans to open an audition for a voice actress out of the public. The Voice actress will dubb in for Yuki, also known as Kyo's girlfriend who never really appeared in the game but only in rare official illustrations (and KoF95's ending portrait). It has not been announced if she will actually be a playable character or only reside in the background.
There is also rumor of another new character for KoF97', different from the three decided by the magazine polls.
