During the latest GameGoons livestream, SNK revealed a new character trailer of its upcoming fighting game Samurai Shodown.
This time around we get a returning character, and that’s Shiki.
Shiki debuted in Samurai Shodown 64 in 1997, but her appearances have been sporadic since. Personally, I’m very happy to see her come back considering that she is quite awesome, both due to her design and backstory.
If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the previous trailer showing off Ukyo Tachibana, and a gallery of his screenshots, another video showing off new character Darli Dagger and a batch of screenshots focusing on her as well. We also have a video starring Nakoruru, and another featuring the new characters as a whole.
Samurai Shodown releases in Japan on June 27 for PS4 and Xbox One, with PC and Switch versions coming in winter 2019. Interestingly, the western website of the trailer still list only “June” as a launch window, but unless SNK is going to release the game earlier in North America and Europe, it can’t really see it being that far from the Japanese launch. There are only three days in June after the 27th.
A Season Pass is also coming with four unannounced DLC characters.
