    Hinako Shijo is a 17-year-old Japanese student of Russian descent. Although she’s a schoolgirl, she’s well versed in sumo wrestling. She may be shy, but she’s a loyal friend to those who know her. Hinako made her debut in The King of Fighters 2000 as a member of the Women Fighters Team, and she was last seen in The King of Fighters Allstar. Hinako finally makes her playable return in The King of Fighters XV as the final Season 2 DLC character on November 14. SNK did not explicitly reveal if a third season of The King of Fighters XV is in development, however.
