She'll be great friends with Ukyo

Samurai Shodown's already seen a few crossovers in its second season beginning with For Honor's Warden, but this time the developers are pulling a strong pick from one of their other classic fighting game rosters.

SNK released the premier gameplay trailer for Hibiki Takane from The Last Blade 2 tonight as well as her release date instead of their regularly scheduled King of Fighters 15 reveal, but there's probably going to be few people complaining about that because of what we've got in front of us right now.

Hibiki's quick draw style of Battōjutsu makes her pair up nicely with Ukyo Tachibana and his fighting style though she still brings more than enough from her source material to make her stand out in the crowd.

While we only get to see a few defensive options here, she appears to have most if not all of her classic move set intact with some updated animations to bring her into the HD era.

Her rapid slash specials are fully on display in the trailer as is her running slash though obviously we don't yet know if holding the button down will affect it — and what properties it changes if it does.

She'll mark the second Season 3 character to hit the game after Cham Cham, and we've still got two more to go who have yet to be revealed — we do know one of them is going to be another crossover character from Guilty Gear, however.

The daughter of the master swordsmith will be available for owners of SamSho's Season Pass 3 for $19.99 or by herself for $5.99.

We've only got a week left to wait before we can try out her updated form, as Hibiki will be releasing in Samurai Shodown on April 28. You can check out her full trailer below to see her flying across the screen.
