SNK confirms the Samurai Shodown reboot will launch June 27

SNK’s new Samurai Shodown is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 27. Versions of the game for Nintendo Switch and Windows PC are coming sometime this winter, and a Japanese arcade release is due this summer.

Samurai Shodown will bring back 13 characters from previous entries in the franchise, as well as three newcomers. During a livestream video event on Thursday, SNK officially revealed that new trio: Darli Dagger, a shipbuilder who fights with a saw-toothed blade; Wu-Ruixiang, a Chinese fighter who can summon a dragon; and Yashurama Kurama, a fallen samurai who wears a crow bill mask and fights with a nagamaki, a sword with an extended handle.

Those three join a group of fighters culled mainly from the early Samurai Shodown games. The rest of the roster is as follows:

  • Haohmaru
  • Nakoruru
  • Earthquake
  • Galford
  • Hanzo Hattori
  • Tam Tam
  • Kyoshiro Senryo
  • Jubei Yagyu
  • Ukyo Tachibana
  • Charlotte
  • Genjuro Kibagami
  • Shiki
  • Yoshitora Tokugawa
