Samurai Shodown Introduces New Fighter Darli Dagger
by Sage Ashford
SNK has released another character trailer for a character from the upcoming Samurai Shodown game. An original character new to the universe, Darli Dagger is a sailor and shipwright that was originally introduced during PAX East last month, though this is the first time we’ve seen a full section of gameplay devoted to the character. Her main weapon appears to be a gigantic saw sword, though the developers has said she has a few surprises if she’s somehow disarmed. Moreover, in this trailer we see a couple points where she switches to using a giant spiral-looking weapon.
Darli Dagger joins Yashamaru Kurama and Wu-Ruixiang as the three newcomers added to the game’s roster so far (bringing the total revealed roster up to sixteen characters currently), but given SNK’s penchant for titles with massive rosters and the developer’s interest in adding guest characters, it’s unlikely they’ll be the only ones added to the game.
Samurai Shodown launches on PS4 and Xbox One on June 27th, with the Nintendo Switch and Windows versions launching later in the year.
