The Samurai Shodown roster continues to grow with the addition of Hibiki Takane from The Last Blade series as a DLC character on April 28, 2021. SNK has shared a new trailer to showcase moves from the “Innocent Slash.”
Hibiki Takane made her debut in The Last Blade 2 for arcades in November 1998. She has since then appeared as a guest in numerous other titles, including the crossover fighter Capcom VS. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium 2001.

Hibiki Takane will join as the second DLC character from Samurai Shodown Season Pass 3. The first character from the pass is Cham Cham from Samurai Shodown II, and we still don’t know who the remaining two characters are. In any case, Cham Cham joined last month, and Hibiki joins next week, so it shouldn’t be too long until we find out more. One of the two characters is a guest from Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear fighting game series. Samurai Shodown added other guest characters in Season Pass 2 with Warden from Ubisoft’s For Honor series and Gongsun Li from Tencent’s mobile game, Honor of Kings.

Samurai Shodown is available worldwide for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PC via Epic Games Store, and arcades in Japan.
