SNK revealed that Chizuru Kagura is set to join The King of the Warriors XV by forming Team Sacred Treasures with Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami. It deviated from the usual weekly schedule of a new character trailer every Wednesday night, like the unveiling of Chizuru in KOF XV was created in 2. Japan Fighting Game Publisher Roundtable stream.
Chizuru debuted as the penultimate vice president of King of Fighters ’96, the third game in the then annual series. Chizuru’s last playable appearance before XV was in the tenth game, KOF 2003. This is the first time we’re seeing her fight in one KOF play with 3D models as she could not be played in The King of Fighters XIV.
According to the series̵
The confirmation of Team Sacred Treasures further shattered expectations KOF XV characters would be grouped based on the trailer revealing the order. Although Joe Higashi’s trailer came between Iori and Kyo, he is not grouped with them.
The King of the Warriors XV is currently under development by SNK with a release window for 2021.
