July 20th happens to be the birthday of Cassandra Alexandra, so scroll down to see some brand new concept illustrations with commentary by Bandai Namco!

"This is the concept art of Cassandra. The design is based on the image of a brave and courageous ancient Greek warrior. The new main color, orange, and the heroic fluttering scarf are the features of this costume."

"In the rough draft stage, we considered many variations of the uniform-style costumes from past works. The modern sheer tights inherited from SC2 could not be removed as an important feature of Cassandra."
