Looks like she retains just about everything from her previous Guilty Gear iteration

When fans first learned that Samurai Shodown would be bringing in a Guilty Gear crossover character in Season 3, just about everybody expected the choice to be Baiken, and they were proved correct earlier this week.

SNK recently released a new video detailing all of Baiken's special moves and Supers in SamSho as well as the color options that'll be available to players once she drops.

From the looks of things, it appears as though just about everything in her Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 toolkit has carried over special-wise, which will give her a lot more options compared to most of the rest of the cast.

Of course the Tatami Gaeshi floor mat attack was quite visible in Baiken's reveal trailer, but the more interesting thing is how much of her Azami counter and Suzuran dash follow-ups have been included.

Kuchinashi, Mawarikomi, Sakura, Rokkonsogi and Yashagatana are all seen though Kikyou seems to be absent and maybe replaced by a jumping normal.

Baiken's Kabari grappling arm is of course also here with its own command grab, ground explosion and slashing follow-ups making it into Samurai Shodown too.

Her Tsurane Sanzu-watashi Overdrive from REV 2 is also here for the nice cherry on top.

SNK released new screenshots of her four color options that all drastically change Baiken's hair and clothing which you can check out below along with the video.

We won't need to wait very long to take her for a spin ourselves since Baiken will be launching in SamSho tomorrow, August 19.
