Developed by SNK exclusively for China, the third of four original characters for The King of Fighters World was recently revealed. Her name is Hoshino Kaoru, and she is a popular up-and-coming model in the game’s story setting. Signed to the same talent agency as Athena Asamiya (from Team Psycho Soldier), Hoshino seldom has a chance to showcase her powers till the tournament came calling.
As mentioned in my other articles, The King of Fighters World is a mobile MMORPG, hence there will be open world maps, instanced areas, story quests, and infused with PVP fighting modes. However, battles take place with an isometric camera view, not side-scroll platform stages. Classic bosses and stage designs from the console game series will also make their appearances!
