It's been revealed that Shizumaru Hisame will be coming to Samurai Shodown as a free DLC fighter in September 2019.

In addition to this, gameplay was shown for Rimururu, Basara, Kazuki Kazama, and Wan-Fu. Remember that these fighters will be releasing in August, October, November, and December of 2019.

The upcoming combatant, Shizumaru Hisame, first appeared in Samurai Shodown 3. One of his cinematic attacks has him using an umbrella to shield himself from the opponent's raining blood.

SNK still had more announcements to make. Clearly they've been very busy.

The first character that will be part of Samurai Shodown's Season 2 pack in 2020 has also been revealed. Mina Majikina apparently came in first place for the Samurai Shodown DLC character popularity poll.

Three other silhouettes were also present. These images appear to be placeholders as they all looked exactly the same. Still, this does tell us that there will be at least 4 combatants joining Samurai Shodown via season 2.

Although we've already had confirmation that King of Fighters 15 has been in development, SNK were kind enough to show off the new logo. Once more, fans have been reminded that the upcoming title is in development.
