In addition, the PlayStation Blog offered the following official profiles for each of the four Samurai Shodown DLC characters.
Basara is back and ripping into action with his signature weapon, the Togabitogoroshi. If you thought ninja throwing stars were dangerous, wait till you see this monstrosity. Nobody wants to embrace death more than Basara, but he is one of the few examples where you can’t always get what you want.
When there’s an evil spirit bringing an imbalance to the natural order of things, who do you call? Kazuki Kazama, of course! Armed with the Suzaku, a blade which contains the trapped fire spirit, Enja, Kazuki sets out to bring peace to the land and vanquish evil!
I bet you’re looking for ice or cold puns. Come on. Even I know better than that.
Cute and cold have never gone together so easily! Oh, but watch out; her zoning tactics will have you ripping your hair out. Loveable Rimururu is joined by her protector spirit, Konru, as she sets out on an adventure to prove she has what it takes to protect nature. Does she succeed or fail in her journey? Read the first letter of each sentence in this paragraph to find out!
Throughout the series, Wan-Fu has used many weapons to send his opponents to the afterlife. In this installment, he’s picked up his trusty stone pillar to turn people into manhole covers. Wan-Fu doesn’t just drop his weapon, he throws it–you decide who’s going to be on the receiving end.
Samurai Shodown is available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America. It will come to Japan on June 27, 2019. It will appear on the Nintendo Switch and PC in Winter 2019.
