Samurai Shodown getting a DLC character from The Last Blade

Who's it going to be?

SNK has announced that a character from The Last Blade is going to be joining Samurai Shodown as DLC. This was confirmed by Samurai Shodown director Hayato Konya in a special video message. Konya went on to say that the character is "someone the fans absolutely adore." Finally, Konya also confirmed that balance and adjustment tweaks to overall gameplay are being made as well.

TLB is absolutely underrated, so I'm glad to see this.

"someone the fans absolutely adore."
Probably Akari, she seems really popular. I'd love to see Kaori/Kojiroh Sanada or Lee Rekka, but any representation from The Last Blade is really awesome!

Now this is a pleasant surprise! I can't wait to see who it is!

SNK has been on a bit of a resurgence in the past few years. I've seen the upcoming Last Blade manga... I'm hoping these efforts are SNK testing the waters for interest for the Last Blade revival/reboot.
