Developer Shade and D3 Publisher have shared a new character trailer for their upcoming action title, Samurai Maiden. One of the main characters, Iyo, is introduced.

Her profile is quoted below:

Iyo – Voiced by Miku Ito

A ninja who serves Nobunaga. Fully equipped with shinobi tools, she is adept with gunpowder, bombs, and flaming kunai. Iyo has a great respect and love for Tsumugi and would give her life in a heartbeat to help her out.

You can view the English Iyo character trailer below, highlighting her combative capabilities and interactions with the protagonist, Tsumugi:

Samurai Maiden will release in the West on December 8, 2022, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

On the other hand, Japan will receive the title for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on December 1, 2022.

Throughout this title, protagonist Tsumugi Tamaori finds herself summoned within her sleep to the Sengoku period, where she encounters the legendary Nobunaga Oda, Japan’s initial great unifier.

However, a portal to the underworld opens up beneath the Honnoji Temple, causing Tsumugi to be granted a sword by Nobunaga. Though thankfully and coincidentally, Tsumugi knows the basics of swordplay since she practices it as a hobby. So, armed with this genuine weapon, she goes on to slay waves of undead foes.
