Samurai Shodown is still a relatively new game, with its scene still in its infancy. Every patch that comes makes it more intriguing as the developers seek to balance the game more.

One of the gods of the fighting game community Justin Wong has taken a liking to the game and is one of the top players. He offers his thoughts on Yashamaru post-balance changes in this video.

Yashamaru is a fighter Justin Wong was using before the balance patch. He thought Yashamaru was near the top tier before, but after the changes believes for sure that he is top tier.

One of his best traits is the damage output he gives. It's excellent alongside a very annoying, but effective super.

His anti-air game is also very much an asset against the rest of the cast. Yashamaru's double jump is yet another tool that stands out in his kit.

For a great breakdown of the fighter after the latest changes, Justin Wong gives an excellent video to watch. Check out all that makes Yashamaru top tier in the video below.
