A character from The Last Blade will join the roster of Samurai Shodown as part of its July-announced Season Pass 3, developer SNK announced.

“I’m proud to announce we’re bringing a character from The Last Blade into the Samurai Shodown Season Pass 3,” Samurai Shodown director Hayato Konya said in a special video message.

SNK producer Yasuyuki Oda added, “Wow! It’s that old fogey, Genbu no Okina, right?”

Konya responded, “Nope! Actually, they’re someone the fans absolutely adore! Of course, we’re also balancing and adjusting the game as well. You guys are really gonna love it!”

Samurai Shodown is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC via the Epic Games Store, and Stadia. An Xbox Series version is due out this winter.
