The Shooting Star Benimaru Nikaido will make his way to SNK’s The King of Fighters XV as part of the new Hero Team.
Benimaru was born into a rich family, raised by his Japanese father and American mother. Electrostatics attacks are his speciality, mixed with shoot boxing that allows him to land thunderous kicks. Unlike previous entries, he watches over Shun’ei and Meitenkun on behalf of his friend and rival Kyo Kusanagi. For fans of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, his design was based off Jean Pierre Polnareff’s character.
