Samurai Shodown Yoshitora trailer

The Samurai Shodown V protagonist.

Samurai Shodown

The ninth character trailer for Samurai Shodown introduces Yoshitora.

Here is an overview of the character, via Athlon Games:

This heir to the Tokugawa shogunate carries seven swords, named after six lovers and himself. Despite his position (and sharp grasp of military strategy), Yoshitora cares little for politics, and would rather spend his time chasing life’s pleasures. Getting a grasp of his six phantasmagoric swords is nearly impossible, and only one person has ever seen him unsheathe his special long sword ‘Yoshitora’ and lived to tell the tale.

If you missed it, previous trailers introduced Yashamaru, Haohmaru, Genjuro, Charlotte, Shiki, Ukyo Tachibana, Darli Dagger, and Nakoruru.

Samurai Shodown is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 25 in the Americas and Europe, and June 27 in Japan. Switch and PC versions are planned for release in Q4 2019.
