Another gameplay trailer.
I am surprised they're so honest about the ridiculousness of flipping three people over yourself from three separate directions at once that they'll put it in a trailer.

I do like it tho
Vortiger is alright. This combined with the Shugo rework shows how much the devs have learned about balancing. Really, it comes down to normalizing attack speeds; 500ms is just fast enough to be unreactable and create proper mixups. With this in mind, balancing other heroes will be easier. Lawbringer is next, and I have faith that the devs will do right by him.
After that I'm expecting Raider will get the next one, maybe followed by Aramusha. After that it's more a matter of tweaking some of the B tier heroes like Nobushi and Centurion. I might make Nobushi's lights from neutral faster; while they're 500ms, the static guard and animation makes them pretty easy to parry. Right now you can't really put up a good offense with Nobushi without using up a lot of stamina with feinting and hidden stance. Centurion should also be able to feint from his unblockable so he has a real mixup. As of right now Centis easy to defend against if you're patient enough.
Aramusha still needs more unblockables, since simple blocking still shuts him down. Otherwise, most of the heroes are now viable in competitive, and even the weaker ones have something to offer in team fights.
Buncha new signatures being added. Most notably, the Berserker's one is a tribute to the dearly-departed Stefán Karl Stefánsson's Robbie Rotten character and available for free.

5th faction: Rabbids. Only for April Fools Day, of course.

This is actually not a in-game screenshot, it's just an edited picture of an Apolloyon cosplay.
Mmmm, the samurai with the axe hero is coming soon.
It'll be the like, one of five times media has ever indicated the medieval Japanese used axes in battle. (understandably, they were rare compared to like everyone else)

Yeah, normally samurai are seen as using pikes, bows, and swords.
Yeah, this will be the second Samurai that I'll be playing regularly since Nobushi.
Hopefully they won't be Shugo 2.0 looks wise.
I have a good news for you then. Instead of a Shugoki look-alike, we got a Japanese axe-wielding female Jason with supernatural power I guess?
Vortiger: "I AM SO EDGY!"
Sakura: "Hold my sake, gaijin."
Also, the hero class' name is Hitokiri.

Like Hitokiri Battousai?

I don't know enough Japanese (which is to say almost any at all) to know if there's other, better explanations.
