Yash, queen

King of Fighters fans were treated to something of a surprise this week as we got a trailer for Yashiro Nanakse, a character who hasn't been actively playable in the franchise for almost 20 years.

On top of everything we saw during Wednesday's reveal, developers over at SNK have given us four additional screenshots of Yashiro as he'll appear in the upcoming King of Fighters 15.

We'd be remiss if we went any further without addressing the (albeit small) elephant in the room that many fans couldn't help but rapidly point out as soon as one of the particular images below started making the rounds.

The fourth image in the gallery (also seen in the banner above) sees Yashiro in a pose that looks a whole heck of a lot like one of Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta's poses from Dragon Ball FighterZ. While a tad jarring, the Crown Prince of Saiyans probably isn't the first to strike such a pose, either, and this is surely a forgivable mimic.

Social media users have also been pointing out the fact that the latest revealed KOF15 character's belt has a "1997" engraved onto it, almost certainly pointing to King of Fighters 1997, Yashiro's debut title.

Check out the four new images in the gallery below and be sure to let us know in the comments how excited you are for Mr. Nanakase to be in KOF15.
