The King of Fighters XV Chizuru Kagura trailer, screenshots

Topping off Team Sacred Treasures.

The King of Fighters XV

SNK has released a new trailer and screenshots for The King of Fighters XV introducing playable character Chizuru Kagura (voiced by Sayaka Ohara).

Chizuru Kagura and the previously revealed Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami make up the game’s second fully revealed team, “Team Sacred Treasures.” Here is each fighter’s description:

  • Chizuru Kagura – Chizuru Kagura is a descendant of the Yata clan, one of three powerful clans entrusted with the Sacred Treasures capable of sealing away “Gaia’s Will”, otherwise known as Orochi. Her fighting style resembles traditional Japanese dancing, while her access to the Kagura Style of Ancient Martial Arts allows her to seal away her opponent’s abilities. She convinces heirs of the other two clans, Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami, to once again join forces and enter the latest King of Fighters in the hopes of revealing the powers behind the appearance of the being known as Verse and the weakening of the seal on Orochi.
  • Kyo Kusanagi – Kyo Kusanagi is the heir to the Kusanagi clan and successor of the Kusanagi Style of Ancient Martial Arts. The Kusanagi clan is one of three entrusted with a Sacred Treasure, and thus a cleansing flame resides within Kyo’s very own blood. Though his biggest rival is Iori Yagami, they are both left with little option but to put aside their differences and team up once again for this latest King of Fighters to hopefully prevent Orochi from resurrecting.
  • Iori Yagami – The Yagami clan is one of three ancient clans entrusted with a Sacred Treasure. As a descendent of this clan, Iori has access to abilities that allow him to tear apart his foes, and powerful amethyst flames granted by his knowledge of the Yagami Style of Ancient Martial Arts. His ancestors signed a blood-pact with Orochi 660 years ago, sparking a feud with the Kusanagi clan. Despite this, he decides to up-hold his duties as a member of the original sacred clans and joins the King of Fighters.

Previous character trailers introduced Kyo Kusanagi, Joe Higashi, Iori Yagami, and “Team Hero” fighters Benimaru Nikaido, Meitenkun, and Shun’ei.

The King of Fighters XV is due out in 2021 for unannounced platform(s). Read more about the game here.
