Samurai Shodown Yashamaru Introduction Trailer

Today, SNK released a character introduction trailer for one of Samurai Shodown 2019's most badass-looking newcomers. Yashamaru Kurama is "fallen" samurai who stalks the shadows as the phantom thief “Karasu Tengu (Crow-Billed Goblin)." Weidling an heirloom nagamaki, he fights using the ancestral tengu powers he has inherited. He loathes villains who exploit the weak for financial gain. Because his father was executed on false charges in the past, he has developed a deep hatred for the Tokugawa Shogunate.
