After baiting their fanbase the other week, SNK has confirmed that Team Sacred Treasures will indeed be appearing as an official team in King of Fighters 15 with the long-awaited return of Chizuru Kagura, teaming up with Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami.

The trailer shows footage of Chizuru who makes her return to the series after a 18-year absence with her last playable appearance being way back in King of Fighters 2003.

As the first character to join the game who wasn't a part of King of Fighters 14, this also makes Chizuru's 3D debut with a gorgeous recreation of her shadow-esque movement in the series' new graphical style.

The story implications of reuniting the three Sacred Treasures remain to be seen, as the three have never been an official team in a game before. In the lore, the three had to co-operate to destroy Orochi, so there must undoubtedly be some very big threat for them to put aside their differences and team up once more. You can check out her gameplay trailer below.
