Three New Characters Enter The Battlefield of Samurai Shodown

Published

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.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

 on

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
