We knew SNK had something in store for Samurai Shodown at E3 2019, and we now know that it was a new character coming to the Season Pass.

Rimururu was unveiled as the first DLC character coming to Samurai Shodown after launch during the YouTube Live E3 show accompanied with a brand new trailer for the fighter.

She appears to have all of her ice spirit powers intact in the reboot along with possibly some new ones including her Ice Crystal, Pedestal, Boulder and Geyser given new life.

First introduced in Samurai Shodown 2 and made playable in 3, Rimururu is Nakoruru's adopted sister who idolizes everything the heroine does to combat the forces of evil.

No release date was given with the announcement, but players who pre-order the game or purchase it before June 30 will receive Rimururu and the other three DLC characters of the first Season Pass for free.

Samurai Shodown is scheduled to release on June 25 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. PC and Nintendo Switch ports of the fighter are also in the works for a late 2019 launch alongside the recently revealed Google Stadia version.
