SNK dropped another major announcement at EVO 2019 as they revealed all of the DLC characters on the way for Samurai Shodown this year. During the event, a trailer ran showing off the game and properly showing off all the characters to come. We now know that Rimururu will be coming this month, Shizumaru Hisame will be free in September, Basara in October, Kazuki Kazama in December, and Wan-Fu in February 2020.
We also learned that Mina Majikina will be a DLC character in Season 2, along with three more characters that have been hidden in silhouette. No official date was put on the second pass or when Mina would be available.
Regardless, it appears SNK are going to do all they can to support Samurai Shodown with new content for a solid calendar year, most likely leading up to the next EVO event. Enjoy the trailer showing off all of the characters!
