Earlier, at the international game show G-Star 2021, a large booth was prepared and extensive publicity was carried out, and the final work is in full swing for the official launch this year. In other words, matsuri_G44 is a cosplay of a character in the upcoming release, which has not yet been released much information in Korea, the mainland, let alone China. At the time of G-Star 2021, the gameplay video of ‘Nike: Goddess of Victory’ was uploaded to Billy Billie, which is called China’s YouTube, and achieved more than 800,000 views, and this enthusiasm seems to have led to cosplay.
According to the ‘Nike: Goddess of Victory’ teaser website, Alice is ‘Nike from Unlimited, who protects extreme areas and rescues lost Nike. A girl with a flower garden in her head, a cute delusional who thinks through a fairy tale filter on everything. I believe that if I meet Mr. Rabbit (the main character) and defeat the Queen of Hearts (Rapture Queen) who bullies people, I will be able to enter a happy world.”
