PlayStation All-Stars Bio: Nariko

It’s time for the latest PS All-Stars Battle Royale character bio, presented by the Daily Reaction team of Seb and Dan. This time we carry the heavy burden of delving into the history of Nariko.

Name: Nariko

Origin: Calling her a ‘damsel in distress’ would be like calling Dan a good writer – it’s just plain wrong. Nariko was born to be a bad ass, with her tribe prophesying that her father’s child would bring tranquility to the land… except they expected the child to be a male. They believed that the person would wield the ancient godly blade called ‘The Heavenly Sword’, which they has been guarding from evildoers due to its incredible power. They shun Nariko and her father refuses to get over the fact that she’s a female, but when King Bohan tries to take the sword Nariko has to use it to fight back… even if its power might end up killing her.
