Until he decides to blow them up that is

In less than one week, we'll all be able to finally play the new Samurai Shodown in the comfort of our own homes, and it looks as though SNK is kicking things into high gear to release new character trailers every day this week to get through their whole roster before release.

Hanzo Hattori, one of the game's few ninja characters, is today's lucky fighter to receive his own highlight video showing off Izuna drops, teleportation and lots of fire.

The shinobi is one of the few characters who have appeared in every major title in the series from the original onwards along with King of Fighters: Maximum Impact 2 plus other mobile and cameo appearances.

Hanzo fills in the standard ninja archetype with his available move set focusing on using ninjutsu to teleport around the screen and attack with projectiles / explosives instead of landing many hard-hitting slashes and sword strikes — though he has those too.

The character is built around the real Hanzo Hattori of the 16th century who served the Tokugawa clan and has been represented in many other forms of Japanese media like the Samurai Warriors / Musou series.

Samurai Shodown is scheduled to launch on June 25 in the West on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One where early adopters will receive its first Season Pass for free. You can take a look at Hanzo's trailer below along with the previous looks at Tam Tam, Galford, Jubei, Yoshitora, Yashamaru Kurama, Genjuro, Haohmaru, Shiki, Darli Dagger, Nakoruru, Charlotte and Ukyo. Be aware there is NSFW violence and blood in these trailers.
