Shizumaru Hisame is now available for free in Samurai Shodown. This particular fighter already looks to have good potential thanks to his instant overhead, touch of death combo, and a collection of other tech that has already been discovered.

But where do you begin if you want to learn how to play the character? GamingAndJapan has released a gameplay breakdown video that details exactly that for aspiring Shizumaru Hisame mains.

During the video, we get the opportunity to learn which normals of Hisame's are special cancellable. Notably, some attacks can even be cancelled on whiff.

A quick demonstration of Hisame's specials is also demonstrated to us. Like every other character, he has a Dragon Punch type attack which is perfect for ending combos and anti-airing.

Hisame is also armed with a projectile reflector. While his short stature will automatically make him difficult to rush down, he is well-suited to dealing with zoning styles too.

A small sampling of his combos is also contained within the video.
