Yuri Sakazaki Confirmed For KOFXV With New Trailer And Screens

Watch Yuri Sakazaki demonstrate the power of Kyokugenryu Karate in the latest KOFXV trailer

SNK released the ninth character trailer for The King of Fighters XV today, introducing Yuri Sakazaki.

The trailer, which is set at South Town’s iconic Pao Pao Cafe, showcases the Art of Fighting alumni’s impressive martial arts skills. Watch as Yuri shows her opponents the power of Kyokugenryu Karate in the latest KoFXV trailer below:


To coincide with the new trailer, SNK also released a handful of new screens highlighting Yuri’s moves and poses. Check them out below:


She may be tiny, but let her diminutive stature fool you. Yuri is Ryo Sakazaki’s daughter, after all. And as such, she was born to deliver some nasty karate beatdowns.


Don’t let that innocent face fool you: Yuri’s come a long way from being Art of Fighting‘s damsel in distress.


Yuri Sakazaki’s super special is the Haoh Shoukou Ken. Trust me: you don’t want to be on the receiving end of this energy blast.


Don’t worry about your eyebrows, Meitenkun. We promise they’ll grow back someday.

Other characters SNK has previously confirmed for the game are Andy, Shun’ei, Meitenkun, Benimaru Nikaido, Chizuru Kagura, Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, Leona Heidern, K’, Mai Shiranui, and Joe Higashi.

The King of Fighters XV will release in 2021. At the time of this writing, SNK has yet to specify which platforms the game will be available for.
