State of Survival is celebrating its Japan launch by releasing a second Japanese character in the game. The first Japanese character is known as Tanaka Miho. 

Miho’s backstory revolves around vengeance and the search for justice for her dad’s death. Her father had been murdered in a gangland execution back in Japan. Miho knows how to use guns, knives, or any other weapon which makes her a very versatile melee and ranged character.

State of Survival offers diversity to its characters too by featuring different representations from various parts of the globe. There’s Candy from Taiwan, Daryl Dixon from the United States of America, and Kang Eunjoo from Korea.

State of Survival new hero Nanami

Nanami knew that she was not like any other girl. As a child, she was a little bit more sporty and athletic. Nanami would always climb trees and play sports. Under the gentle influence of her family, she gradually fell in love with kendo.

Now for those of you who are not familiar, kendo is a modern Japanese martial art which uses bamboo swords and armor. It is a pretty popular martial art, especially among traditional Japanese families.

Despite her lovely appearance and gorgeous facade, Nanami’s personality is filled with contradictions. She has a very short temper and can easily wipe off an entire zombie army through her anger alone as seen in her teaser video.

KingsGroup Holdings also revealed that Nanami has been separated from her family. She will do whatever it takes to find her kin. Her sword was forged to defend her loved ones.

At times, Nanami just stared blankly at the falling frangipani blossoms, as if by doing so she might communicate her thoughts to someone.
