SNK presented three King of Fighters XV characters with trailers for each, providing some interesting glimpses into the gameplay.
SNK corporation revealed Benimaru Nikaido gameplay on January 28, 2021, completing the roster of Team Hero. It consists of the aforementioned fighter along with Shun'Ei and Meitenkun.
Benimaru Nikaido was born into a rich family, borrowing genes from a Japanese father and American mother. Given all the puns in his description, one could easily mistake him for a reincarnation of Zeus, but then again, you can see electricity sparking all over the place when Nikaido pulls his moves out.
The reason he is part of Team Hero is apparently that Kyo Kusanagi forced him into a position where he has to watch over Shun'ei and Meitenkun.
Speaking of which, Shun'ei is specialising in illusions. While a talent of that sort sounds intriguing to say the least, it is also thee reason why his parents disowned the fighter. However, Tung Fu Rue took him under his wing and trained the young illusionist, who now considers the mentor part of his family.
Meitenkun is the other part of Shun'ei's adoptive family who is also his best friend. This sleepy fighter carries a pillow at all times but also uses it in combat apparently. So yeah, you can have a pillow fight if two players pick Meitenkun.
It appears that the other characters in KOF universe have trouble measuring Meitenkun's power, which could potentially make him a narcoleptic wildcard.
