Amakusa first appeared as the one in charge character of the original SamSho all the way back in 1993, and hes been consisted of in nearly every mainline title given that– so its not too much of a surprise to see him popping back up in the reboot.

Samurai Shodown very first launched in June 2019 followed by a Epic Games Store version in 2020. As lots of most likely presumed, Epic appears to have obtained a 1 year exclusivity offer for the title, so itll lastly be readily available on Steam almost 2 years after its initial launch.
Both Amakusa and the new Steam port of SamSho are set up to release on the very same day, June 14, so we have a little less than a month to wait until the next update hits SNKs battling game.
Cham Cham and The Last Blades Hibiki Takane formerly released as part of its Season Pass 3, and theres still the Guilty Gear crossover character to complete things out, who hasnt been revealed right now.
The former boss fights utilizing his magic-infused gem, which he can throw out and have it return to him, so hell likely be developed as more of a zoner in the existing title.
Considering he was initially an undead fighter brought back to life by Ambrosia to do bring some evil into the world, itll be interesting to see if Amakusa will when again be a villain or if his initial kinder nature will shine through. That appearance on his face though makes me think it may be the former.
Unless SamSho ends up getting a 4th season of content, Amakusa will likely be the penultimate DLC fighter contributed to the video game.
SNK appears to have captured everyone by surprise tonight by revealing who the next character signing up with Samurai Shodowns third season is as well as a new version of the game that fans have actually been inquiring about for 2 years now.
The designer revealed tonight that Shiro Tokisada Amakusa will be returning as the third character of Season Pass 3 along with a new Steam version of the fighter.
