Samurai Shodown

The upcoming SNK fighting game Samurai Shodown has a new trailer showcasing the full roster that will be available at launch.

Alongside the multiple returning characters, the trailer reveals three new characters: Darli Dagger, Wu-Ruixiang, and Yashamaru Kurama.

Darli Dagger wields a huge sawblade-type long axe and is a shipwreck victim who has been raised by pirates to sail and defend herself.

Wu-Ruixiang is more of a diplomat, as she works for the Qing dynasty with the mission of protecting the Long Mai generations. She has the ability to call divine beings and dragons into battle.

The last new character is Yashamaru Kurama. He is a ‘fallen samurai’ who is known as the phantom thief. He wields a Nagamaki, a larger katana with extended handle and blade, which borderlines on being a polearm. He also has special Tengu powers. Karuma hates villains, especially those who take advantage of the less fortunate. This personality aligns him with Haohmaru and his other allies.

In the previous trailer, all returning characters were showcased but not named.

The official roster will consist of Haohmaru, Galford, Earthquake,  CharlotteNakoruruGenjuroKyoshiro, HanzoTam TamUkyoJubeiYoshitora, and Shiki, as well as the new Darli Dagger, Wu-Ruixiang, and Yashamaru Kurama. Samurai Shodown will therefore feature a total of sixteen characters.

One other nameless character is also shown briefly. The identity of this character is unknown, but he appears to be Yashamaru Kurama with black hair and glowing yellow eyes, which is different than his white hair and brownish eyes.
