Kill la Kill has such a colorful and diverse cast of characters which made it a perfect candidate to receive a video game tie-in... even if it did come more than five years after the show originally began airing with the announcement earlier in 2018 that Arc System Works and A Plus Games are collaborating on Kill la Kill the Game: IF.

Two new fighters were recently announced via this week's Famitsu magazine in Japan to be coming to the arena brawler / fighting game rounding out the rest of Satsuki's Elite Four with Nonon Jakuzure and Hoka Inumuta joining the roster.

Nonon is the only female member of the Elite Four, she and oversees a number of the school's clubs though her Goku Uniform transformation very clearly is tied to the marching band.

Sound is Nonon's weapon which is represented in the game as a variety of different long range projectiles to keep enemies away or trap them in spaces, as she can shoot a giant laser, send out flying orbs, set bombs around the arena and more. This points to her being the title's first real zoning fighter.

Inumuta's Probe Regalia Goku Uniform isn't exactly known for overpowering opponents through pure strength, and it instead analyzes other uniforms and fighters to find their weaknesses. In the game, he reportedly has a unique "Analyze Gauge" which fills by hitting opponents with ranged attacks. Using up the meter allows Inumuta perform stronger follow up hits and gives him access to new moves.

Kill la Kill the Game: IF is set to come to PlayStation 4 and PC for a worldwide release in 2019. You can take a look at Nonon and Inumuta's new image scans in the gallery below plus gameplay the previous pair of Gamagori and Sanageyama here.
