Samurai Shodown DLC Characters Season Pass

Samurai Shodown is out today on PlayStation 4, and if you haven't already seen our review, it comes highly recommended. As is the case with most fighting games these days, SNK's latest has a season pass that promises additional characters, but in a rather refreshing twist, they've been revealed well before they start releasing later this year.

The season pass will net you four additional characters, all of them returning from past Samurai Shodown titles. First up is Rimururu, who arrives in August, followed by Basara, Kazuki Kazama, and then Wan-Fu. We've included their official character models below -- just click to see them in full.

It's important to note that if you buy Samurai Shodown before the 30th June -- that's this Sunday -- you'll get the season pass for free. Not a bad deal if your mind's already made up.
