Samurai Shodown (Samurai Spirits in Japan) is a fighting game series that’s beloved just as much as fighting game giants Street Fighter and Tekken, so its return to the scene with the 2019 reboot was a welcome sight to fans of the series!
SNK has supported the game since its release by bringing back recognizable characters from Samurai Shodown’s wide history in the form of DLC characters. Characters like Shizumaru, brothers Sogetsu and Kazuki, and Iroha. Now, SNK will release a brand new character to the roster, and it’s someone we never saw coming, but somehow fits right in.
Bushido and Chivalry will clash as Samurai Shodown’s newest fighter is none other than the Warden from Ubisoft’s For Honor. Looks like Charlotte and Galford won’t be the only fighters of Western lineage now!
The Warden from For Honor really looks right at home with the crew of SamSho. Sporting his iconic armor and two-handed Longsword, the Warden from the Knights faction is set to dish out his brand of honor and valor, bringing along a few moves from his game… like a devastating catapult.
The staff at Ubisoft are thrilled to have For Honor represented in the game and For Honor game director Nicolas Bombray and Associate Art Director Andrew Im have a special message to everyone.
Check out some of the screenshots below:
For Honor’s The Warden will be released as a DLC Guest Character for Samurai Shodown this June 24, 2020.
