Samurai Shodown Season Pass 3 Now in Development

SNK Corporation have announced during the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable that the Season Pass 3 is now in development for Samurai Shodown.

DLC Season 2 had included MinaSogetsu, Iroha, and the Warden from For Honor. Gongsun Li from Honor of Kings was also recently announced as free DLC.

Due to the latter two characters, the roster could potentially see more guest characters. Even so, returns of fan-favorites from older games in the series, or entirely new characters are more likely. Who are you hoping to see? Sound off in the comments below!
