SNK and Athlon Games released a new character trailer for their upcoming fighter, Samurai Shodown, coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 25, and Nintendo Switch and PC in Q4 of 2019.
This trailer introduces the self-proclaimed “Superhero of Justice” Galford. His mission is to travel the world on a quest for peace, accompanied by his pet dog Poppy and his Justice Blade. Together the duo set out to strike down every enemy in their way in the name of justice and there doesn’t seem to be anything holding them back.
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.
