SNK Corporation have have released a new gameplay teaser trailer for The King of Fighters XV focused on Chizuru Kagura; during the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable #2.
As with Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami; she is a decedent of one of the three clans (in her case, the Yata Clan) that sealed away Orochi, and holds one of three sacred treasures. Unlike her other cohorts, she is more cool and calm.
In The King of Fighters 2003, she lost her powers to Ash Crimson. But here, we see her being able to create copies of herself and energy spheres to compliment her Kagura-style martial arts.
As stated in the video description; she, Kyo Kusanagi, and Iori Yagami make up Team Sacred Treasures.
You can find the Chizuru Kagura trailer below.
As previously reported at the game’s announcement, the game is currently being optimized, with certain features being “brushed up.” An animated promotional short by Masami Obari (the 1990s Fatal Fury movies) is set to be released soon, along with a new trailer next week.
The King of Fighters XV launches 2021. Platforms have not been confirmed at this time. We shall keep you informed as we learn more.
