The next character is going to be from Guilty Gear. I'm not much a of a GG fan but its interesting to say the least.

It’ll be hilarious if my main Baiken makes it into Samurai Shodown as a guest, yet remains excluded from the main roster of Strive lol

After a long wait, the LRG SS Collection sets are finally shipping out and mine just showed up. I wish I'd gotten the game a lot sooner, but it is a really nice set! There's an MVS box inside the liner, an AES box inside of that, and a mockup mini-cart inside the AES box along with the PS4 game. The MVS box also contains a soundtrack and a mini art book. Definitely one of the better limited editions I've seen lately.
Just sounds like a whole lot of useless crap. A mockup mini-cart? c'mon.

PS: Hibiki has been released. There is a major bug with her counter move and it's being fixed.

Just beat her story mode and it was alright she had some arc with Jubei which was nice.

Whats unique about her is that she has a bloodthirsty mode that you unlock by defeating each enemy she faces with a killing blow and her dialogue changes aswell as her ending. Or you could just hold down x when selecting her outright. All in all it was pretty cool.

And yeah her counters let her block projectiles easy which is indeed op.

The main game is currently 50% off on PSN (not sure about XBox / Switch), along with its Deluxe Edition, which includes Season Pass 1.

Baiken isn’t my main character, but I like her and I think the same. She could be a very interesting and fitting addition in SS.

Speaking of Hibiki, little Easter Egg: in The Last Blade 2 she had two endings depending on the number of kills. In SS she has different artworks!

Yeah if you hold down x or square at the character select screen you get the first.

Hibiki is a treat to use. Tied for first w/ Darli for my main.

this game has exceeded my every expectation for it...it’s my favorite since SSII.

we’ve come so far, from Sen to this.

Same thoughts. I personally find it the best looking SS overall since 2, aside from the sprites quality of SS3 / SS4.

The game is great for competitve play, but its online mode is hindering the experience (extremely random connection quality, delay-based, and lobbies crashing constantly).

I've been playing it since launch. If you are up for testing the connection, let me know. I play on PS4 and sometimes I get decent connection with US players (PSN: Alucard-XII).

Shiro Tokisada Amakusa joins SS on June 14th as the 3rd DLC Character in the Season Pass 3! I’m happy for this, the first boss will be back!

Amakusa looks awesome. Loving that rock remix of his theme.

Despite many years have passed, even in this last return decided to continue to quote Jonathan Joestar's Jojo pose. :mr_t:

Moreover, the final scene than when Amakusa defeats Haōmaru, reminded me a lot of a special technique that Gogeta used in the movie 'Dragon Ball Super Broly' (2018).
