On March 14 1979, Athena Asamiya was born… err… supposedly? coming from SNK’s King of Fighter’s video game series, Athena is an idol that pre-dates Vocaloid’s Miku by like, a lot, as she appeared in King of Fighters 94!
While she is best known for being on the Psycho Soldier team in King of Fighters with the likes of Kensou, Bao, and Chin, Athena’s own game is known for actually being the very first game to feature a song with vocals in it! Whiole only in the arcade game, the famicom version did come with a cassette that had the song in higher quality, and that is what is below!
Happy Birthday Athena!
