Darli Dagger has been announced for Samurai Shodown. Even those familiar with previous Samurai Shodown titles won't recognize her as she is the title's first newcomer.

Not much is known about the character right now. We only got to see a still image of the fighter. No gameplay or backstory has been provided.

She is armed with a very large saw blade. It apparently has some "secrets" that the developers weren't ready to talk about right now.

There appears to be a sailor theme involved with Darli. A pirate icon is plastered on her giant blade and she is wearing a bandanna.

Darli was also described as "the most badass and shipwright to ever sail the seven seas." Notably, she's apparently really popular among the developer team as she has some cool moves to work with.

It's worth mentioning that Darli Dagger is the first of three newcomers that will be available to play in Samurai Shodown. We'll know about two more as time goes on.

Samurai Shodown will be released in Summer of 2019. The confirmed returning fighters right now are Haohmaru, Nakoruru, Galford, Earthquake, Jubei Yagyu, Genjuro Kibagami, Hanzo Hattori, Kyoshiro Senryo, Charlotte, Shiki, Ukyo Tachibana, Tam Tam, and Yoshitora Tokugawa.
