SNK will reveal the names and visuals of the remaining original characters it is creating for the new Samurai Shodown during a presentation on April 5 at 11:00 JST, the company teased. You will be able to watch the presentation live on YouTube and Twitch.
The new Samurai Shodown has 16 playable characters, 13 returning from previous entries and three original. The following silhouette teases the original characters:
The left-most character is Darli Dagger, who was revealed at PAX East 2019 in Boston this past weekend. Darli Dagger is a sailor and a shipwright with a weapon that has a few secrets, as well as “one of the few characters that has something special when she is disarmed,” according to game designer Joshua Weatherford.
Samurai Shodown is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June, Switch in Q4 2019, and PC at a later date. If you missed it, read our preview here.
(Note: While the tweet linked above does not clarify that all three characters will be revealed at the event, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu does.)
