While the DC's KOF99 official release date is 6/24, the images from the gallery have already been released due to a player in Hong Kong.  
In the pictures, two of the five new characters can be confirmed. The long haired character is probable to be K' (Kuniharu Nikaidou) of Japan/Benimaru's team, while the little boy is probable to be Pao in the Psycho Soldier Team. This leaves Makishima- the substitue for Goro Daimon in Japan/Benimaru's team, Whip- The whip using female in Ikari team, and Jon (Fon?) of Kim's team, to be unraveled.
