Curious of when the Samurai Shodown DLC Season Pass characters will launch? We have the details on all of the upcoming characters here!

2019’s Samurai Shodown reboot has launched and it brings back a classic style of methodical defensive and hard-hitting gameplay to the FGC. The game is fun and players are deconstructing its characters and their functions to get ready for EVO where it is a spotlight game. That said, there’s also plenty of new goodies to look forward to. SNK has already announced the entirety of the Samurai Shodown Season Pass DLC and it’s a who’s who of old-school characters. This guide will help you get ready for them when they launch

SNK Global announced the season pass characters on June 25, 2019. They are Rimururu, Basara, and Kazuki, who all first appeared in Samurai Shodown 3, as well as Wan Fu, who appeared in the original Samurai Shodown and is one of only two characters from SamSho 1 to have not made the cut so far from that cast (the other being Gen-An Shiranui). 

When Do The Samurai Shodown DLC Character Launch?

The season pass characters do not all have established dates yet, but the months in which they will launch are already marked. Rimururu will launch first, Basara is second, Kazuki is third, and Wan Fu comes last in this first batch of downloadable characters. Below are the windows of their launch, which will be updated with days as they become available.

  • Rimururu - August 2019
  • Basara - October 2019
  • Kazuki - December 2019
  • Wan Fu - February 2020

Those who picked up Samurai Shodown before June 30 could also pick up the Season Pass for free up until June 30, which would grant them access to all of the first round of Samurai Shodown DLC. It is unknown at this time whether or not this will be the only Season Pass, but with Samurai Shodown pulling attention on the main stage at EVO 2019, it will certainly have time to shine.
