The trailer introduces players to Tam Tam, a warrior from a South America village called Green Hell, which leaves little to the imagination. He is known as being a kind-hearted young man with strong family bonds based on how much he enjoys peace and spending time with his little sister. However, after danger comes knocking, Tam Tam rises up and straps on his divine mask which transforms him into a ruthless opponent. His unique fighting styles incorporates his massive stature and signature Henge Hange Zange blade.
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.
