Things get weird with the next DLC character.
The Samurai Shodown revival has taken the gaming fighting scene by storm, and is coming to various different platforms soon. But for now we’ve got to refocus a bit on what systems it’s currently on, as we look ahead to some upcoming DLC. The game has a pretty steady and extensive DLC plan, and this month we go to the creepy side of the samurai-themed fighter with Basara.
Originally introduced in Samurai Shodown 3, Basara is an undead, zombie-like creature who uses an oversized shuriken hooked to a chain. As you can see in the video below, he’s a good fit for the Halloween month, as he’s a rather odd fellow. The music even changes to a creepier tone as he twists and yelps in several unnatural ways.
Samurai Shodown is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also launch soon for Switch, PC, and Stadia. Basara will release on available platforms October 15th.
