Cham Cham and Hibiki Takane join Samurai Shodown 3 as part of Season Pass 3

Two of four characters coming

SNK has shared some insight into Season Pass 3 for Samurai Shodown. We now know that both Cham Cham and Hibiki Takane will join the roster, with Cham Cham due out mid-March, and Hibiki coming at a later date with two other characters. The addition of Cham Cham will also usher in a battle system update.

When asked why these characters are being included, Director Hayato Konya said Hibiki was included due to a desire to feature more SNK IP. For those who don't know, Hibiki is from The Last Blade. As for Cham Cham's inclusion, Konya said fans had been requesting the character, so they made the move to include her.

As for the updated battle system, there will be a new Guard Crush mechanic added. Along with that, the game will be re-balanced, and new tweaks will prevent weapons from disappearing off-stage.

Glad to see one of my predictions make the cut. Hibiki was my safe pick for Samurai Shodown.

It def makes sense to add Cham back into the game, as she was one of the only missing characters from the original Samurai Shodown games.

I think most people who are into fighting games would agree that Kaede most likely has a guaranteed spot as a DLC character for Samurai Shodown.

Lastly, I think KOF 14 and 2002 will be announced for the Switch in an upcoming Nintendo Direct.

Terry's inclusion in Smash has given many Nintendo gamers exposure to the King of Fighters, and SNK overall as far as legacy and IP is concerned.
