New Trailer Showcases Samurai Shodown’s Seafaring Swordswoman Darli Dagger

Drill, baby, drill! Darli uses shipbuilding tools to craft some pain in the latest Samurai Shodown trailer

Samurai Shodown, Darli Dagger


A few weeks back, we were offered a first look at one of Samurai Shodown’s three new characters, the fearsome shipwright Darli Dagger. Now, the game’s developer SNK has provided GameSpot with an exclusive trailer offering a look at her unique fighting style, which makes use of a variety of shipbuilding tools — with gruesome results.

Watch as Darli swings a massive saw blade like a sword and bores deep into the meat of her opponents with an enormous drill in the trailer below:


Samurai Shodown will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this June. The PC and Switch version is scheduled to follow later this year. The game, which is being developed by the team responsible for The King of Fighters XIV, takes place before the events of the Neo Geo original. It will feature 16 returning warriors in addition to 3 newcomers. Stay tuned for more details as the game’s release date draws closer.

So, what do you think of Darli after seeing her in action? Be sure to sound off in the comments section below and let us know.
