The transforming baton must be standard issue in the future.

Nicalis has dropped a new trailer for Blade Strangers, this time featuring Noko, the time-traveling policewoman from Sayonara Umihara Kawase.

For those not familiar with the franchise, Umihara Kawase is a series of platform games dating back to the mid-1990s. Noko Yokoyama hails from Sayonara Umihara Kawase, the 3rd game from the series, where she’s introduced as a descendant of the main protagonist, Kawase.

Noko joins her ancestor, as well as Emiko, as the third representative from their home series. Here, she fights with a police baton that transforms into an energy gun during certain moves.

Blade Strangers is set to hit PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC later this year.
