Watch Team Psycho Soldier Put on a Psychic Smackdown in the New Trailer!
I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but Team Psycho Soldier isn’t really filled with psychos or soldiers. On the contrary, it’s comprised of a famous J-pop idol, goofy high school kid, and an old drunk kung fu master. Don’t let that fool you though, because this team is legitimately dangerous.
First off, we have the psycho ball flinging Athena Asamiya. Athena is a cheerful and friendly high school girl who is adored worldwide for being a famous pop star. She has a strong sense of justice and always puts on a worthy show for her fans on stage and in the ring. Athena utilizes a variety of psionic abilities and will be a terror to any opponent in THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV tournament. Next up, we have Sie Kensou, a goofy Kung Fu kid with a penchant for dragons. He fights with a hybrid Kung Fu and psychic style, and has a lot of potential to become an unstoppable fighter. Oh, he’s also in love with Athena and hopes to impress her one day with his fighting ability. That’s as good as any reason to fight right? Lastly, we have the drunken master Chin Gentsai. Chin is a very ancient fighter who lulls his opponents to sleep with his drunken antics before exploiting their carelessness. He is both master and mentor to the two younger members of Team Psycho Soldier, and wants them to test their psychic abilities in the tournament.
