Samurai Shodown Reveals Shiki in New Gameplay Trailer

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.

This trailer features Shiki who originally debuted in Samurai Shodown 64. Shiki is surrounded by mystery and doesn’t really have a past. She woke on Mt. Osore with no memory of the events the led up to her being there. Without a clue of who she was, she picked up two swords she found at the base of the mountain and started her journey. Who knew that journey would lead to her kicking ass everywhere she went.

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.
