And we are on to season 2 DLC for Samurai Shodown. This is a NEW NEW character, not just one of the old ones coming back and it’s a bit odd. I’ve been happy with the choices so far, despite the last set of characters getting too into the waifu region, especially with Iroha.
So this guy is a knight. He unlocks tomorrow so I haven’t gotten a game with him yet, but will as soon as possible. Unlike samurai swords, the European longsword is much more of a club you can stab with. Extremely well made (never discount the Europeans for their steel forging– they were amazing) but not really for cutting bodies in any subtle way, Knights would brute their way in combat, using the pommel, punching and using the heavy sword as a club mostly vs other armored enemies. With that, I’m curious how this guy fights.
While I would like to see many of the old characters come back (Sieger, Gen-An, Caffeine Nicotine, etc.), Darli Dagger was brand new to the series and she has grown on me a ton– a big-hit female character in games is pretty rare!
