As usual, SNK Character Designer Tomohiro Nakata offered new KOF XV commentary on Elisabeth Blanctorche, the most recently revealed fighter. Each one of these installments goes over details about the person in the game. This time, it’s more of a brief overview. Nakata talked about how her look changed. Her Coup De Vent attack came up too.
Elisabeth first appeared in The King of Fighters with KOF XI. Back then, she wasn’t on Ash Crimson’s team like she is now. Rather, she appeared on the Rivals team alongside Benimaru Nikaido and Duo Lon. However, her Coup De Vent attack last appeared in KOF XIII.
Here are Nakata’s thoughts on Elisabeth.
I’m sure a lot of folks were pining for her return, and not only is she back, but she’s also been reunited with Ash Crimson and they’re on the same team! Her overall design hasn’t been drastically changed, but she’s now sporting a leather corset and the length of her sleeves have been altered a bit. So her silhouette may look different.
Elisabeth is known for her excellent specials like Coup De Vent, which can launch enemies up after a combo, as well as her Grele, which has great recovery. She has a ton of other moves, so be sure to pick her up and experiment a bit.
Elisabeth wraps up KOF XV’s starting roster of 39 characters. So if you’re new to KOF or you’ve been playing them for years now, KOF XV is going to be packed with a ton of fun content that we know you’re gonna love. KOF XV will be releasing soon, so get ready!
Previously, Nakata talked about Kula Diamond and her moveset.
KOF XV will appear on February 17, 2022 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. Its Omega Edition will be available for the PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X in North America and Europe.
