Samurai Shodown DLC Character Lineup Announced

First Season Pass runs through Feb. 2020

Publisher Athlon Games and developer SNK has announced the full lineup of DLC characters coming to Samurai Shodown via the game’s Season Pass.

Here is the full list, along with their estimated time of arrival:

  • Rimururu (August 2019)
  • Basara (October 2019)
  • Kazuki Kazama (December 2019)
  • Wan-Fu (February 2020)

Rimururu was already announced two weeks ago, but learning the identities of the remaining three characters this early on comes as a nice surprise. We’ve become so used to being asked to put forward money on a Season Pass that we don’t know the contents of, that we forgot companies should really let us know such details in advance.

Though this might apply to many in this instance, since those who purchase Samurai Shodown before June 30 will get the Season Pass for free.

Overall, it’s a quality selection, with Rimururu and Basara likely to be the stand-outs among them. It’s a shame that characters like Iroha, Cham Cham or Mina didn’t make the cut this time around, but there’s always the chance they will be included in future DLC.

Samurai Shodown is out now for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the Switch and PC versions are due out in Q4 2019.
