Update: Liongate from Code of Princess EX also received his first trailer for Blade Strangers today. The masked man appears to fight using deliberate strikes with his sword, fist and kicks. You can check out his trailer along with Helen and Kawase's after the jump.

Earlier: Publisher Nicalis has had a busy week on their hands announcing five new characters for Blade Strangers in the last week with another brand new character joining the roster announced last night.

The majority of characters in this new fighting game are guests from other series like Shovel Knight, but Helen will be joining the current 14 character roster as the game's second original character.

Helen fights with a sword and round-shield that appear to be similar in design to the Greek warriors, Sophitia and Cassandra, from the Soul Calibur series.

She appears to be able to use her shield for parries to throw her opponents off-balance as well as a shield bash and rush which she can run-cancel out of to extend her combos. Her other moves seem to revolve around quick, singular sword slashes and kicking attacks.

Along with Shovel Knight, Isaac from the Binding of Isaac, Noko from Umihara Kawase, Azure Striker Gunvolt and Quote from Cave Story+ were all recently announced as playable characters in Blade Strangers. The game will be available later this Summer on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam.

Kawase from the Umihara Kawase series was shown off when the game was initially revealed, but she just recently received her own character trailer. You can check out both characters' trailers after the jump.
