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.
The trailer introduces Rimururu, who is the first character for the game’s season one set of DLC characters. In case you missed it, the Season One Pass is available to owners of the game for free before June 30 – 5 days after the game’s launch. Additional Season One fighters will be revealed leading up to the game’s launch.
Rimururu is a cute character who uses dagger and ice elemental attacks to take out her enemies. It seems as though she doesn’t take anything seriously, but she’s actually a very capable fighter.
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.
