press release

SAMURAI SHODOWN Season Pass 3 lets CHAM CHAM out of the bag on March 16th!
DLC character from popular fighting game series GUILTY GEAR also confirmed!


SNK CORPORATION (Corporate HQ: Suita-city, Osaka, Japan, Company Chairman and President: Ge Zhihui) is proud to announce CHAM CHAM, the first DLC character in the SAMURAI SHODOWN Season Pass 3 lineup, will be available to download on March 16th, 2021. More info regarding the GUILTY GEAR DLC character will be released on the same day. 



Fan-favorite CHAM CHAM joins the fray!

Starting March, 16th 2021, CHAM CHAM, the first DLC character in the Season Pass 3 lineup, will be available to download!
She first joined the series in SAMURAI SHODOWN II, where she soon became a huge fan-favorite among players. Now CHAM CHAM’s back to her cute antics in the newest edition of SAMURAI SHODOWN!




CHAM CHAM is the younger sister of a powerful warrior residing in a village in Green Hell, a lush forest located in South America. Together with her monkey pal Paku Paku, CHAM CHAM often leaves the comfort of her village to go out and explore—oftentimes getting herself into dangerous predicaments. This time, however, she leaves on a mission to find her big brother. Her moves are hard to read due to her reckless and bold nature, so be prepared to suffer the consequences if she’s had enough playing around.
