King of Fighters XII — new video and camel toe

A few weeks ago, Famitsu revealed two of twelve console-exclusive (as opposed to arcade) characters in SNK Playmore’s King of Fighters XII: Elisabeth Branctorche and Mature, who might have the worst name in video game history. Mature is an adjective, not a name. That’d be like calling your kid Stinky or Yellow or Intelligent. Whatever.

Well, today, Kotaku got a little extra information about the fearsome dames:

Mature is pretty quick on her feet and favors speedy attacks when in combat. She used to be Rugal’s secretary, but rumor has it she may have been a spy. She is a babe, but she can also be somewhat ruthless and cruel. Elisabeth’s fighting style is more orthodox, but she can be tricky despite her minimal move set. She once invited Benimaru Nikaido and Dup Lon to France to form the Rival Team. Elisabeth has a special relationship with Ash Crimson

To be honest, I don’t know too much about the King of Fighters franchise, so I can’t really talk about the narrative implications of Elisabeth’s relationship with Ash or anything of the like. The King of Fighters wikia might be a better place for that sort of thing.

But, I can tell you what I do know a bit about — the mysterious camel toe. Our Canadian brethren to the north may call it a “moose knuckle,” while our Japanese cousins refer to it as a “ninja slipper.” No matter where you’re from, it’s a mystifying phenomena. For more about how to guard against this mythical malady, head over to Cuchini.com (SFW)*.

How is any of this relevant? Well, Elisabeth’s got one. And it’s kind of titilatingly creepy. And there’s a picture of it (also SFW) in the gallery below, courtesy of One Bored Gamer.

You can also hit the jump for a gameplay clip of Elisabeth (camel toe and all) kicking the crap out of Joe Higashi.
