Here’s SNK’s reveal on Twitter. As it notes, people in Europe and Oceania already can see her on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

As a reminder, Iroha is a crane who also is able to take the form of a human. She’s an exemplary fighter and participates in matches for the sake of her unknown master. She first appeared in this series in Samurai Shodown IV, but hasn’t been playable in another entry until now.

This means there is one final character to be revealed for Samurai Shodown Season Pass 2. The first was Mina Majikina, who was followed by Sogetsu and Iroha. Back in a Siliconera interview about potential DLC characters, director Nobuyuki Kuroki said, “Personally, I prefer Sieger.”
