Newcomer Yashamaru Kurama receives his character introduction trailer for Samurai Shodown

A bit edgy but I like

We're just over a month away from Samurai Shodown making its long awaited return to the fighting game community, and SNK is keeping up with their trend of releasing new trailers every week to highlight their 16-man roster.

This week's character introduction gives us our best look yet at one of the title's most interesting looking newcomers, Yashamaru Kurama, and all of the secret powers he wields given by the Tengu.

Yashamaru fights primarily using his long-reaching nagamaki passed down through his family to slice and pierce through his opponents with ease.

While he does not have wings like a Tengu, the SamSho newbie does appear to be quite comfortable attacking from the air, as he's shown doing so many times in the trailer between his air spinning slash, a piercing dive kick and his super moves.

He also looks to have some type of special form where his standard white hair becomes black, his eyes begin to glow and loses his mask. A unique attack that shoots something like a flury of glowing feathers at the opponent before his hair changes colors again.

Samurai Shodown is due out on June 25 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One where early adopters will receive the four-character Season Pass for free if they purchase it within the first week. You can check out the previous character trailers on EventHubs for Genjuro, Haohmaru, Shiki, Darli Dagger, Nakoruru. and Ukyo. Be aware there is NSFW blood and violence found within these trailers.
