This rumor was posted on September 5, five days before we got the official announcement:

Another details revealed in the information received includes some of the characters that the game will have. The few characters mentioned are Haohmaru, Nakoruru, Rimururu, Charlotte, Ukyo, Genjuro, and Shiki. While most of these are expected, the inclusion of Shiki will be a welcomed addition. Shiki, was a character that made her debut in the Samurai Shodown 64 title, one of the games released on the il fated Neo Geo 64.

Rimururu was more expected but Shiki is a nice surprise if this ends up being true, which it seems like it since the leak also said the game would use Unreal Engine. We will see.

I don't believe in leaks anymore, thanks to Vergeben.

There's been so many right leaked lists these past years: SFxTK, UMvsC3, Dragon Ball FighterZ Season Pass, MKX... and the list go on and on.

I'm pretty confident this one is true. Not that there's a lot leaked though, just 2 not known characters so far.

If shikis is I can't wait for asura. Having yuga and gandra would be icing on the cake.

They make sense. I know Shiki is popular. Not sure Rimururu, but she seems like she would be.

And we know, for a revival game like this, they're going to include as many of the fan favorites as they can (with a few brand new faces, of course).

I leaked the new Samurai Shodown game 4 months ago and no one ever reported on it. rofl

Every character shown in that artwork was passed along to me prior to the game's showing, but having an SNK source was new to me so I decided to take a wait and see approach because I had no way of guaging whether they were right or wrong and English or German speaking SNK sources are very very hard to come by so you can see why I waited.
Anyways Shiki and Rimururu will also be playable. I don't know the full size of the roster but that does let you know it will not only be the characters in the artwork.

This new Samurai Shodown game has a much bigger budget than KOF14 had and currently the 2 titles taking precedence at SNK are the new Samurai Shodown and KOF15, which is in very early development.
SNK Heroines is essentially side project for SNK. Female Skullomania, Miss X, and World Heroes's Janne D'arc will be DLC characters for that tho.

Does KOF15 have a bigger budget as well/planned to look better? I loved 14, but a lot were turned off by it's sub par visuals.

That'd be something else. Terry or Kyo in Smash? I'm super down for that.
