The Ainu Priestess soars into action!
SNK released the first character trailer for Samurai Shodown series veteran Nakoruru, showcasing some of her abilities in the new installment. “Young, fast, and deadly Nakoruru can take to the skies or even reflect attacks from her enemies,” reads her trailer description.
In the footage we see her hanging upon her pet hawk, Mamahaha, giving her limited flight capabilities, just like King of Fighters XIV. The character can also reflect projectiles back to her foes using her cloak and send out Mamhaha like a projectile. She also appears to have a type of parry, which she demonstrates by catching Charlotte’s blade. You can see the full trailer below, but be warned there is quite a bit of blood, as is Samurai Shodown‘s legacy.
Expect more character trailers to be released in the near future. Samurai Shodown will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 27th, with PC and Nintendo Switch versions to follow sometime afterward.
