Kasumi revealed as Paladins' next champion
A scary edition sneaks in
This October, Kasumi, Death’s Howl, will become the newest Damage Champion in the free-to-play fantasy team shooter Paladins. You can see the debut trailer for Kasumi above, with full details on what this character has to offer coming tomorrow.
Kasumi is a haunting apparition that lives—despite her own death—to torment and curse her victims. Tied passionately to this Realm, she is unwavering in her pursuit of vengeance upon those who have wronged her.
Kasumi brings an eerie Yokai Doll to the fights. As she grips, twists, and stabs it, her target finds themselves disoriented and hurting. As a ghost, Kasumi is able to travel as an ethereal projection of herself. She can also place near-invisible traps that will later allow her to teleport right behind unsuspecting enemies. When the suffering of her prey culminates, Kasumi effectively turns them into a bomb as they explode with pain, damaging nearby allies.
