The rebirth of the arcade classic Samurai Showdown was a much needed kick in the ass for the current fighting game genre. Our favorite fighting game of 2019 was made even better when it was annouinced that the first season of DLC fighters would be free to all players if they pre ordered the game or went into the PlayStation Store and downloaded the season pass during the first week of the game’s release.
Now in the year of our lord 2020, a new season pass for the game has been announced that will add four more characters to the roster starting as soon as next month.
Mina (Feb. 2020)
Mina made her first debut in SAMURAI SHODOWN V in 2003. Now she’s back and ready for action. Born in Ryukyu with strong spiritual energy, she wields her bow clearing the world of evil demons. Mina reached 1st place in the Dengeki Online’s most wanted DLC characters poll.
Sogetsu returns after making his first appearance in SAMURAI SHODOWN IV in 1996. He’s a fearsome ninja of the Kazama clan, able to control the power of water. Kazuki, his younger brother, made his comeback to SAMURAI SHODOWN in November as a DLC character in Season 1.
Iroha first spread her wings in SAMURAI SHODOWN VI in 2005. She fights to protect her master at all costs using her two butterfly swords. She claimed 2nd place in Dengeki Online’s most wanted DLC characters poll.
A fourth character will be announced at a later date.
No word as of yet on the cost of the season pass or the individual characters so stay tuned.
