Get a look at Nakoruru, Love Heart and Mui Mui in the trailer for Team Another World
Samurai Shodown‘s Nakoruru makes her first playable appearance in the King of Fighters series (2000 saw her as Yuri Sakazaki’s striker,) leading the team of Love Heart and Mui Mui into battle as an ominous being makes its presence known.
Leading the team is the Maiden of Light from Samurai Showdown, Nakoruru! She gathered Team Another World and traveled through time and space to THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV tournament. This nature loving Ainu priestess is sure handy with a sword, and cuts through opponents with her Dancing Sword Arts of the Shikanna-Kamui style. Believe it or not, swordplay is NOT her most dangerous weapon. Oh no, her most dangerous asset is her wonderfully named pet hawk Mamahaha. For example, Mamahaha can dive bomb enemies and pick Nako up into the air to confuse/terrorize opponents. Although Nakoruru is a peace loving gal, she’ll introduce adversaries to a world of hurt if necessary.
About Mui Mui:
Next up we have Mui Mui, a member of a legendary ancient Chinese clan who fights with a powerful Kung Fu style. Even though she’s small in stature, the dragon blood running through her veins gifts her with great strength rivaled only by her voracious appetite. Mui Mui used to protect her clan’s treasure in her world, but accepted Nakoruru’s plea for help in order to track down this being. She won’t go home until the job’s done, but at least she’ll be able to enjoy some of this realms delicious food.
The final member of the team, Love Heart, also has her own story:
The final member of Team Another World is the Peace Pirate Love Heart. Before being selected onto the team, she was busy seeking vengeance against the Skull Pirates for killing her father. Love Heart is a powerful combatant who fights with a sword and great skill, and wants to help finish Nakoruru’s quest as soon as possible to get back to her task.
