Decapitated opponents hate her! Turn Samurai Shodown’s Hibiki into a bloodthirsty psychopath with one simple trick!
Hibiki cuts free, actually
The Last Blade 2‘s Hibiki Takane has at all times been an emotional kind. It’s completely comprehensible, given the younger swordswoman’s exceptionally robust and violent childhood.
In her brief online game profession, Hibiki has been each a delicate flower and a throat-slitting executioner at one and the identical time. Recognizing this, SNK has given her latest Samurai Shodown iteration a very novel twist, permitting the participant to designate Hibiki’s temper as they see match, toggling Takane’s temper between that of stoic, reluctant experience, or vengeful, fiery-eyed fury — each of which I can relate to on any given day at Destructoid.
To select Hibiki’s temper, all gamers want do is maintain down Light Attack while choosing Hibiki with Kick Attack on the character choose display screen. This “Alt. Hibiki” may have harsher particular assault voice clips, a extra sinister demeanor, and colder win poses and quotes. This neat function is a nice throwback to Hibiki’s Last Blade 2 days, the place Hibiki’s arcade mode ending modified depending on the participant’s ferocity in battle. Good work, SNK.
Samurai Shodown is obtainable now on PS4, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Switch, and Stadia. Hibiki Takane is obtainable as a part of Season 3’s Character Pass, she will probably be adopted by an unannounced third character and a thriller Guilty Gear visitor star at a later date.
