There are only a few characters left to be shown off in introduction trailers for Samurai Shodown, so SNK is spending the final week before release putting out a new fighter each day with the latest certainly being a classic.

Today's trailer is now live for Kyoshiro Senryo where the traditional kabuki actor proves that his fighting style is not just for show when stacked up against the rest of the cast.

Kyo's fighting style surrounds the art of kabuki, a classical Japanese dance-drama. This is why he dons all the elaborate and colorful clothing as well as body paint as he gracefully and entertainingly goes toe to toe with opponents.

The character's go to weapon is his naginata, but he can also breathe fire and, as the headline suggests, summon a giant frog from the ground to take a massive chomp out of the opposition.

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 Kyoshiro's trailer below along with the previous looks at Hanzo, Earthquake, 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.
