Described as the “best zoning characters in KI… situationally,” he has the ability to learn environments so he can take advantage the zoning tools provided. He also has the ability to change the psychological pace of the game.
More information will be revealed next week when the studio live streams the character, and release a full character trailer.
The character will feature:
- 3 shadow stocks
- Shadow-powered ability to cancel any action, turn into shadow, and move a short distance in any direction
- Multi-hitting close-range kick special
