My glasses! I can't be seen without my glasses!

Samurai Shodown is now just a few days away from its official launch, and the guys behind the project have now finished up their mission of releasing character introduction trailers for every member of the cast ahead of the fighting game's impending release.

SNK has now released the trailer for SamSho's third and final newcomer — for now — with Wu Ruixiang, who looks like she may turn out to be one of the most unique fighters in series history thanks to all of the tricks she has up her sleeve... and how clumsy she appears to be.

Her weapon of choice is a specialized dragoncaller compass that looks like a shield at first glance. The Chinese warrior fighting for the Qing dynasty can imbue her compass with magic to shoot fire, reflect projectiles and do some other interesting tricks.

Wu Ruixiang's gameplay appears to revolve heavily about setting traps and trying to get her opponents to approach, as she can set spikes on the ground that can stab the enemy, repel physical attacks or summon down a dragon's leg to stomp them down.

The full body of said dragon will pop out during her super move which will burn her enemies to a crisp surprising even the fighter herself.

Wu Ruixiang's movement appears quite clumsy in battle, as she's apparently not very skilled at traditional combat to the point where she'll need to rummage around for her glasses if she ever gets disarmed during a match.

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 including the first announced DLC character Rimururu.

You can take a look at Wu Ruixiang's trailer below along with the previous looks at Kyoshiro, 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.
