New Shizumaru Hisame character trailer reveals September 16 release date for Samurai Shodown

We learned at EVO 2019 that Shizumaru Hisame would be released as a free DLC fighter in Samurai Shodown. This event was scheduled for some unknown day in September.

A new trailer has given us a better glimpse at Shizumaru Hisame's gameplay. In addition to this, we now know that he'll be releasing on September 16.

Shizumaru Hisame first appeared as the main protagonist in Samurai Shodown 3. While his age is unknown, it is suspected that he's around 12 years old.

He's armed with both a bladed weapon and an umbrella. As he is shorter than the rest of the characters, he appears to be very nimble and difficult to strike.

As shown in the trailer, he is able to throw his umbrella as a projectile. We also witness his ability to descend in the air with the umbrella spinning as if it were some sort of dive attack.

In the background, we also noticed a new stage. Perhaps it will come included in the update that will launch on September 16.
