The return of Shermie was certainly warmly welcomed by fans of The King of Fighters XV, so SNK is continuing to promote her new image.
The developer posted a video featuring artist Tomohiro Nakata as he draws an illustration focusing on the popular fighter, and it’s certainly beautiful.
You can check it out below.
Earlier this week, we learned that Shermie is part of Team Orochi and got a new official description from SNK.
“Charming but dangerous, Shermie is both a fashion designer and the lead keyboardist for the band C.Y.S. Her true nature is the same as Yashiro and Chris, as she herself is a member of the Four Heavenly Kings of Orochi. She incorporates her love for pro wrestling into her attacks, where she relies on her flexibility to toss her opponents around. Shermie is very amicable to those around her, and though she seems quite laid back, nobody really knows if this, too, is an act.”
The King of Fighters XV is slated for release in 2021, but we don’t yet know which platforms it will support.
If you want to see more, you can check out the first trailer, the first gallery of screenshots, and the trailers that revealed Shun’ei, Meitenkun, Benimaru Nikaido, Iori Yagami, Yashiro Nanakase, Joe Higashi, Kyo Kusanagi, Chizuru Kagura, Andy Bogard, Yuri Sakazaki, Terry Bogard, King, Mai Shiranui, Shermie, and Chris.
We also know that an animated short by Masami Obari is going to be published down the line to promote the game. That being said, we don’t know when it’s coming just yet.
