Crossover fighting title Blade Strangers adds another character to its playable roster. This time, Noko joins the fight.

Noko hails from the Umihara Kawase series. She is a time traveling cop, according to Nicalis -- the company behind Blade Strangers.

Nicalis has released the official gameplay trailer for Noko and in it we get a quick glimpse at what the newly revealed combatant can do. She fights with a weapon that looks similar to a police baton, but can open up and fire as an energy gun.

Noko is the third character from Umihara Kawase to be added to Blade Strangers. She joins Kawase and Emiko.

Just last week, Shovel Knight and Isaac from The Binding of Isaac were also officially revealed as playable characters. The cast is now up to 14 fighters, with other characters such as Gunvolt from Azure Striker Gunvolt and Curly Brace from Cave Story+ also among the bunch.

Blade Strangers is due out this Summer on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
