After the top 8 of Samurai Shodown wrapped at EVO Japan 2020, we were treated to something special by SNK.

Although it had been announced way back at EVO 2019 a number of months ago that Mina Majikina would be joining the Samurai Shodown roster with its second season, this is where we finally got our first glimpse at her gameplay.

That wasn't all, though. The trailer also showed us the previously leaked Sogetsu Kazama, and unveiled that the third character of next season will be Iroha. You can find images from the video below.

Mina Majikina fights with a bow and has a small monkey companion with her whose cuteness somewhat offsets her cold and aloof nature and is set to be released in February of this year. Meanwhile, Sogetsu is the brother of the previously released Kazuki, and uses water abilities instead of his sibling's fire-based attacks, although no release window was stated for him.

Next up, although we didn't see any gameplay from her, was the maid-inspired character Iroha who regularly places at the very top of popularity polls, making her inclusion not much of a surprise.

However, the fourth character in line still remains a mystery, with SNK urging fans to look forward to their eventual reveal at some point down the line.
