Haohmaru was one of the first characters revealed for Samurai Shodown. You could almost say that he is similar to Ryu of the Street Fighter series.

Despite this, SNK only released a trailer dedicated to the main series protagonist earlier today. Although this isn't our first look at his gameplay, it does serve as another opportunity to see him in action.

Like his rival Genjuro, he wields a katana as his weapon of choice. His particular blade is named the Fugudoku.

During the trailer, Haohmaru demonstrates his ability to perform standard sword slash and kick attacks. Many of his attacks utilize a fire elemental property.

Haohmaru is also capable of generating a flaming tornado as a projectile attack. The recovery seems fairly quick as he was able to punish a reflect attack thanks to his ultimate attack.

In total, the trailer is about 45 seconds long. Remember that Samurai Shodown will be releasing on June 25th in the West. Those who pre-order or buy early will receive the season pass for free.
