A few hours ago several Japanese companies carried out the second broadcast of the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable event and SNK could not miss it, as it is known for several titles of the fighting genre, and gave news of The King of Fighters XV. The motto of this new iteration is “destroy all expectations” and, boy, does SNK plan to do it in a big way, as it has just revealed that for the first time important arch-enemies of the series will officially form a team.

During the event, the director and producer of the company Yasuyuki Oda confirmed that Chizuru Kagura will be back in The King of Fighters XV and he did it with a great presentation video in which his fighting style of the ancient martial art Kagura can be seen. Interestingly, the last time Chizuru appeared as a playable character was in The King of Fighters 2003, so she will return after almost 20 years and will be her debut in 3D.

However, the most important thing about this reveal is that it was announced that Chizuru will form a team together with the eternal rivals Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami.

The Kusanagi, Yagami and Yata clans will unite in Team Sacred Treasures

Many consider that this revelation was the most important of the event, since these 3 fighters will form a team to participate in the tournament, something that draws a lot of attention, since they are rivals and in no installment of the series had they appeared in the same trio of main form. In case you don’t know, we inform you that Chizuru, Kyo and Iori are 3 descendants of the 3 families that sealed Orochi with the 3 Sacred Relics, the Kusanagi Sword, the Yasakani Jewel and the Yata Mirror, for this reason it is known as the Team Sacred Treasures (Sacred Relics Team).

You can watch the reveal trailer for Chizuru Kaguya below.

Likewise, SNK recently released the first Kyo Kusanagi gameplay, which is seen showcasing his ancient Kusanagi martial arts techniques and his personal Kenpō style against Iori Yagami and more characters such as Benimaru. We leave you his trailer below.
