Later this year, the classic fighting game from SNK “Samurai Shodown” is making a comeback. A demo of the fighter was made playable at PAX East this weekend, which revealed the name and apperance of a brand new playable character, the first for years in this franchise.
Meet Darli Dagger, described by the developers as “The most badass shipwright to ever sail the seven seas”. Darli is a pirate with a big honking sawblade who can do very well if she is unarmed during combat. She has a few “secrets” as well that the devs were not telling anyone during the event.
Nothing about her backstory was revealed or anything else about her, but if looks could kill, her death count would be very high.
Two other new characters will join Darli in the coming months before the game is released.
The confirmed returning fighters right now are Haohmaru, Nakoruru, Galford, Earthquake, Jubei Yagyu, Genjuro Kibagami, Hanzo Hattori, Kyoshiro Senryo, Charlotte, Shiki, Ukyo Tachibana, Tam Tam, and Yoshitora Tokugawa.
“Samurai Shodown” will be released this June for PS4 and XBOX One, with a Switch version coming later this year.
