Samurai Shodown, the newest entry in the venerated weapon-based combat series from SNK, looks like it's shaping up to be quite the revival. While we've gotten a look at one of the game's new characters already, there are also a host of returning favorites, including everyone's favorite French fighting fencer, Charlotte.

The blonde veteran returns with most of her moveset seemingly intact, but with a lot of cool extra flourishes to an already pretty fancy repertoire. You can check out her introduction trailer below.

Charlotte was always one of my favorites in previous games, though I suspect a lot of that was also not knowing how fighting games worked but realizing I could just keep people away and they would get extremely mad about it. She looks decidedly more fluid and fast, like a fantasy version of a fencer, so I am eager to try the character out in the new game.

Samurai Shodown is releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this June.
