Samurai Shodown became available back in June. Last time, we pointed out some guides that demonstrated how to play Charlotte and Hanzo in the new fighter.

This time, it looks like GamingAndJapan has guides for Genjuro and Senryo Kyoshiro. Genjuro is currently viewed as a very strong character while many have referred to as Senryo as one of the game's weaker combatants.

So what makes Genjuro so strong? According to GamingAndJapan, Genjuro has access to a lot of tools that many of characters have, but he simply does them better.

For example, his uppercut attack strikes at a particularly good angle. In addition to this, he has a projectile that bounces off the opponent's guard, which grants him a mix up opportunity.

As for Senryo Kyoshiro, he has a problem when it comes to certain special moves. After performing them, he tends to go into a taunt-like animation that can't be cancelled. This makes him particularly unsafe if blocked or if he whiffs.

Despite this, he is able to counter projectile heavy playstyles somewhat easily. The special that summons a frog / toad allows him to hop over incoming projectiles as the opponent is swallowed by the summoned creature.

Senryo is also armed with an attack that can shave off roughly a third of an opponent's health bar if spaced correctly. Although this is a character that does appear to have some problems, he does have some tools to work with.

These are two guides that are definitely worth checking out if you're interested in these fighters.
