Samurai Shodown

SNK has announced the latest DLC for the fighting game Samurai Showdown featuring Hibiki Takane will release April 28th.

Hibiki Takane is from The Last Blade 2. Daughter of a renowned swordsmith, she pursues the last man he made a sword for before falling ill and dying; a man who radiated evil. Hibiki fights with quick draws, slashing dashes, and counters to befuddle enemies.

Hibiki is the second character for the season 3 DLC for Samurai Shodown. She’s preceded by Cham Cham, a character who first appeared in Samurai Shodown II.

You can find the DLC trailer for Hibiki Takane below.

Two more characters will follow Hibiki to round out the season 3 DLC.
