To help prepare people for Samurai Shodown’s The Last Blade DLC character, SNK offered a hint at one of the extras that will accompany her. The company took to Twitter to share the Hibiki Takane Samurai Shodown BGM. The track is called "[The Last Blade～Determination in the Dawn～] -SAMURAI SHODOWN ver.-"
As the title might suggest, this is a new take on an old song. “[The Last Blade ~ Determination in the Dawn ~]” originally appeared in The Last Blade 2. That’s when Hibiki made her debut in that series. (She appeared in that installment and the NeoGeo Pocket Color follow-up The Last Blade: Beyond the Destiny.)
Here’s SNK’s new version of The Last Blade 2 track that will be used as Hibiki’s Samurai Shodown BGM. The Last Blade 2 version of the track is over three minutes long, so people get to hear about half of it in the clip.
