Today, during the New Game + Expo, SNK announced a new DLC character for Samurai Shodown, and it’s a special one.
The character is “The Warden” from For Honor. Yes. You got it right. Ubisoft’s For Honor, meaning that Samurai Shodown is getting its first guest character.
The Warden is also going to be the last (and until now mysterious) DLC fighter for the second season pass. The release is on June 24.
You can watch the trailer presented during the show below.
The game is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC via Epic Games Store, and Google Stadia.
