One of the three new characters in the latest Samurai Shodown, the Chinese shield user Wu-Ruixiang, is the latest character to get an introduction trailer.
Using her shield and several traps, Ruixiang is a formidable opponent despite her clumsiness. She serves the Qing dynasty, and is a descendant of an ancient feng shui clan that calls forth the power of the divine beasts.
Check out the trailer below:
Don’t let the cute exterior fool you, that shield hurts something fierce and the traps are something else entirely.
