SNK and Athlon Games released a new character trailer for their upcoming fighter, Samurai Shodown, coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this June, and Nintendo Switch and PC in Q4 of 2019.
The new trailer introduces the fan-favorite Charlotte, a French swordswoman who is as authoritative as she is modest. Players will be able to utilize her martial art and sword skills in battle as she fights to protect her country at any cost. She wields a rapier named La Roche, which allows her to execute slashing attacks and stab from a distance to avoid close up encounters.
Samurai Shodown will reboot the 2D fighting game series by presenting it with a new 3D graphical look. However, the developer promises that it will retain the classic fantasy Samurai manga look of the series.
Samurai Shodown is set in the late 18th century after the events of Samurai Showdown V and prior to the events of the original game. As of right now, the game will see the return of 13 classic characters, including Haohmaru, Earthquake, and Galford, along with three brand new characters to the series. The game also has planned DLC characters for after launch.
