It looks like fans can expect to see another guest character join SNK's footsie-centric fighting game, Samurai Shodown. The company tweeted two images last night that announce a partnership with Tencent and a crossover between Samurai Shodown and Honor of Kings.

These images seem to suggest that we'll be seeing a character from Honor of Kings join Samurai Shodown, and vice versa.

"We are proud to announce a collaboration between SAMURAI SHODOWN and the popular mobile game Honor of Kings!" the official SNK Global Twitter account writes. "Stay tuned for further updates!"

In the two promotional images, we see two silhouettes in front of backgrounds tied to each title. On the first one, we see "Samurai Shodown X Honor of Kings" written, while the other has "Honor of Kings X Samurai Shodown" strewn across it.

Beneath these logos, we have the text "Soon, a new warrior will take up the sword!" written on both. This appears to point to a guest character from each series being added to the other game.

Honor of Kings is a multiplayer online battle arena mobile title published by Tencent Games and developed by TiMi Studios. The game sees players take on the role of a unique character of their choosing to defeat CPU-controlled enemies and gain experience points and gold that can be used for upgrades.

Players team up to breach the enemy's defenses, and a win is secured by destroying the core enemy building.

Samurai Shodown has just wrapped up its previously announced DLC with the release of its first guest character. Warden from For Honor joined the battle late last month, concluding the game's second season of content.

With another guest character likely en route, it looks like support for the game will continue beyond Season 2.
