Update: Samurai Shodown to receive new crossover costumes with Puzzle and Dragons next week perhaps signaling Basara's release

Hopefully they'll be coming westward too

Update: Dengenki Online will be holding a live streamed event to show off Basara's gameplay on October 11 seemingly at 7 a.m. PDT further backing up the point that he'll likely be releasing quite soon.

SNK has certainly earned some good will among the fighting game community with their DLC practices in Samurai Shodown though their next release will be unexpected to most.

The company revealed special crossover costumes from the popular mobile game Puzzle and Dragons will be making their way to Samurai Shodown beginning next week, October 15 for Japan at least, which likely clues us in on Basara's release date as well.

It seems only two outfits will be included with this interesting collaboration between SNK and GungHo transforming Shiki into the white-haired Haku and Genjuro into hte dragon-like Fagan.

The crossover digs are priced at 300 yen (which equates to around $2.80 USD) though it doesn't really specify whether that's as a bundle or individually priced.

There has been no mention of these costumes being made available outside of Japan at this time however.

Samurai Shodown's next DLC character, Basara, is also scheduled for an October release, so we'll likely be seeing the undead fighter drop at the same time as the costumes since SNK likely doesn't want to update their game twice in the same month.

With Basara's release potentially only a week away, a gameplay reveal trailer is also likely to drop very soon as well.

These new costumes mark the first additional outfits released for the new SamSho outside of Nintendo 64-era model variants when the game first released, so hopefully we'll see even more added in the future.

Samurai Shodown is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with Nintendo Switch and PC versions currently in development. You can check out the new costumes and some new renders of the remaining Season 1 DLC characters below.
