SNK has teased the next DLC character for Samurai Shodown, and... Well, it appears to be the Warden from Ubisoft's multiplayer melee-'em-up, For Honor. The silhouette provided by the publisher lines up pretty much perfectly with the official For Honor render of the Warden, so unless SNK's somehow nicked the outline for a different character, then it looks like a safe bet.
In For Honor, the Warden wears heavy knight armour and wields a large two handed sword. It's certainly an interesting choice, and the western warrior should provide Samurai Shodown with something a little different.
In any case, the full reveal is happening at New Game+ Expo, which airs on the 23rd June.
