Two new characters as well as a release date have been revealed for SNK's upcoming Samurai Showdown. Both Wu-Ruixiang and Yashamaru Kurama were shown for the first time during today's live stream presentation.

The trailer (included below) showed off all of the game's current fighters as each struck a pose before the two newcomers followed in suit. After said trailer aired, we got a release date of June 27th, 2019.

Both of these fighters were teased along with the all new Darli Dagger earlier this week via silhouettes in a recent Famitsu issue.

The inclusion of these three new characters brings the total number of characters on the roster up to 16.

Samurai Shodown will be featured at EVO 2019 in August, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Here are some stills from the trailer, the entirety of which you can view in the clip below. Let us know what you think of Darli, Wu, and Yashamaru in the comments when you're done here.
