'Those legs that go on for days puts her in the top spot' — King of Fighters 15 illustrator discusses Luong

Luong was recently revealed to be a playable character in the upcoming fighting game, King of Fighters 15. "The Enchanting Beauty" only made her debut appearance in King of Fighters 14, which means she's a relatively new character to the King of Fighters franchise.

Still, it seems that Tomohiro Nakata, character designer and illustrator for King of Fighters 15, believes that there are very justifiable reasons to see her return. In a recent Tweet from SNK, Nakata revealed some of his thoughts about Luong.

"Her first appearance was in King of Fighters 14, and now she's back for seconds," stated Nakata. "Those legs that go on for days puts her in the top spot as far as female fighters are concerned."

Notably, Luong has the ability to stretch her legs to attack opponents from distances that tend to exceed one's expectations. Street Fighter fans can probably make comparisons to Dhalsim, though Luong only does this with her legs and in whip-like attacks.

"Keep your distance though unless you want to be eating dinner through a straw," concluded Nakata.

Despite the reach on her kicks, she appears to be more of a close-ranged combatant. She has a tendency to snap the necks of her opponents, which is probably what Nakata is referencing.
