SNK THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’98 ATHENA ASAMIYA BISHOUJO STATUE
Fighting against evil forces to achieve world peace, the eternal high school girl and idol Athena Asamiya from THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’98 finally joins the BISHOUJO series lineup!
Part of Team Psycho Soldier and the only female character to win the award for perfect attendance in every game, she has been stylized by the beloved illustrator Shunya Yamashita. Takaboku Busujima (BUSUJIMAX) will gorgeously bring her to life in her KOF ’98 costume, an outfit that combines the Kung Fu uniform and Chinese dress motif with shorts.
The base recreates the deck of the boat from the China stage, which is home to Team Psycho Soldier in KOF’ 98.
