Another lineup of fighters is coming to Samurai Shodown! Four additional characters are on the way, and SNK revealed three of them today. Samurai Shodown is the current-gen revival of a long-running series that had its birth in the arcades, back in 1993.
The first character, Mina, will become available next month, with the rest of the roster’s release dates yet to be determined.
Mina made her first debut in SAMURAI SHODOWN V in 2003. Now she’s back and ready for action. Born in Ryukyu with strong spiritual energy, she wields her bow clearing the world of evil demons. Mina reached 1st place in the Dengeki Online’s most wanted DLC characters poll.
Sogetsu returns after making his first appearance in SAMURAI SHODOWN IV in 1996. He’s a fearsome ninja of the Kazama clan, able to control the power of water. Kazuki, his younger brother, made his comeback to SAMURAI SHODOWN in November as a DLC character in Season 1.
Iroha first spread her wings in SAMURAI SHODOWN VI in 2005. She fights to protect her master at all costs using her two butterfly swords. She claimed 2nd place in Dengeki Online’s most wanted DLC characters poll.
Samurai Shodown is available now on Playstation 4 and XBox One. A Switch version is coming February 25, and the Season 2 DLC content will be available for it at the same time as the other systems (which will mean just Mina at first).
