Charlotte Christine de Colde is the new star of Samurai Shodown’s latest trailer.

Samurai Shodown will be exactly 26 years old in two months. The last installment of the franchise was released 11 years ago, and now, due to popular demand, SNK has decided to revive it. The game that has grown with the PlayStation era kids is back. SNK promises that this latest version will surely be better, but the legacy of past games will continue as it always had.

The game will have a total of 13 characters, which will include three brand new faces. Samurai Shodown utilizes Unreal Engine 4, which has greatly improved the visuals of the game. What the developers are definitely proud of is their new Deep Learning AI that allows the players to create “ghost characters” that copies their tactics. The players can then fight against this “ghost character” and share them with everyone else.

Athlon Games and SNK have been busy with the weekly release of Samurai Shodown trailers featuring a different character each time. They sure have us looking forward to every week as the date of the game's release approaches.

If you haven’t been up to date with the Samurai Shodown character trailers, Charlotte’s is already the fifth. The first trailer featured Mother Nature’s Guardian, Nakoruru, together with her hawk, Mamahaha. The second featured Darli Dagger, the new character who is a shipwright who was taught by carpenters and pirates. The third featured character and also the first male to be introduced is Ukyo Tachibana, he is the swordsman famous with the ladies. The fourth is Shiki, Yuga’s servant who wields twin blades.

Charlotte is known as a recurring character in Samurai Shodown. Charlotte is a French noble who is ready to do anything to protect her country. Her weapon is called La Roche, which is an épée, a dueling sword you would usually see in fencing. Her fighting style puts the enemy at a perfect distance to attack them. She also has the ability to put her energy on her épée or even create a triangular projectile from it.

Samurai Shodown is set to be released in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 27 and in the West later in the same month. The Nintendo Switch and PC owners will have to wait for winter to try out the game.
