The franchise’s water boy makes his debut in the latest entry.
The return of Samurai Shodown with the latest title was much welcome for fans of the franchise and those with beloved memories of SNK’s once robust fighting game stable. The game launched with a solid roster and got a full first season of characters, but we’re not done yet. A second season is already underway, with the next character coming in wet and wild.
Originally introduced in Samurai Shodown 4, Sogetsu Kazama has the powers of a water demon he was forced to slay. He wields the power of water in a pretty incredible fashion, as you can see from the trailer below. Don’t be too fooled by the calming music, Kazama can cut it up with the best of them, using his water-based powers for ranged attacks and teleporting. He’s the second of four characters to be part of the current season.
Samurai Shodown is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and Stadia. A PC version will come later this year exclusively via the Epic Games Store. Sogetsu Kazama will release on all current platforms April 1st.
