Exclusive HeroWarz trailer: New character Izanami is playable November 16

Arriving tomorrow in KOG Games’ anime hack-n-slash MMO HeroWarz is Izanami, the Queen of the Underworld.

“Shortly after being drafted into the longstanding war of the Underworld by King Bianchung, Izanami’s father passed away. Her mother was killed by the soldiers who were looking to also draft Izanagi; her only brother. With the help of an illusionist named Garbha, Izanami and her brother Izanagi barely escaped the soldiers. From Garbha, Izanami had learned to master the mystic art of illusion while Izanagi learned the destructive lightning magic. After completing her training with Garbha, Izanagi, ever the idealist, joins the demon general Yanluo’s army to help unify the Underworld, and her brother follows suit. When Izanagi was promoted to the position of Lightning General, Izanami is kidnapped, and placed in the deepest parts of the Third World. However, Izanagi thinks that Izanami was killed by Pluto due to a plot by Yanluo (and likely Hermes) and goes crazy. When Izanami finally escapes the Third World to find her brother, he’s killed in front of her by Yanluo. Enraged, Izanami kills everyone in sight and, in the process, liberates the Underworld. With her true potential realized, Izanami is the first participant of the Dream Architect, Iago’s project that allows traveling to the past through dreaming.”

We’ve got an exclusive look at the brand-new character below in video and image form. Enjoy!
