In the now presented team Orochi, three veterans gather again after 19 years for The King of Fighters XV in a main game.
SNK Corporation announces that three fighters Chris, Yashiro Nanakase and Shermie in The King of Fighters XV will return to the ring after 19 years for Team Orochi.
The three characters from Team Orochi have not been part of the KOF main series since KOF 2002. Now they are returning as the Orochi team, with their own story and motivation.
Chris is the singer of the rock band CYS Like his bandmates Shermie and Yashiro, Chris is a member of the Four Kings of Heaven of Orochi. Although he has no experience with martial arts, he uses his small stature and speed to overpower his opponents. At first glance, Chris appears to be a well-mannered young man, but his lovely smile hides a devilish personality.
Yashiro plays guitar in the band CYY. But there is more to it than that, because as a member of the four heavenly kings of Orochi he has been reborn several times over the last 660 years and is therefore the true enemy of the three sanctuaries. He is interested in the mysterious powers of the strange being Verse and joins KOF together with his friends Shermie and Chris.
Charming but dangerous: Shermie is both fashion designer and keyboard player for the band CYS. Her true nature, however, is the same as that of Yashiro and Chris, because she is also a member of the four heavenly kings of Orochi. She works her love for pro wrestling into her attacks and uses her flexibility to throw her opponents around. Shermie is very friendly to the people around her and even if she seems very calm, no one knows if that’s just a lie.
