The King of Fighters XV Chizuru Kagura, Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami Character Trailers Released

SNK certainly isn’t pulling any punches (or kicks) when it comes to unveiling new information for The King of Fighters XV as recently the developer-come-publisher have unveiled three additional characters and showcased them in some brand new trailers.

In this case SNK have confirmed that Chizuru Kagura, Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami will be playable in the game and have provided some additional character bios alongside trailers for each respective character, all of which can be found below:

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 KOF 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 KOF 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 KOF.

The King of Fighters XV is currently in development with further details to be announced in due time.
