SNK certainly seems to be picking new Samurai Shodown characters from rather peculiar sources, and today a brand new one has been announced.
The new character is Gongsun Li and she comes straight from the mobile game Honor of Kings by Tencent.
She is voice by Kana Ichinose, that Final Fantasy XIV fans may know as Ryne from the latest expansion Shadowbringers.
The good news is that she’s going to be completely free, and she’s releasing on August 8 on all platforms.
Below you can enjoy a trailer and a few screenshots from the press release.
The game is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC via Epic Games Store, and Google Stadia.
