Baiken is a neat fit for weapon-based fighting game Samurai Shodown. In the world of Guilty Gear, Baiken is a wandering samurai out for revenge on That Man. She isn't a playable character in the recently-released Guilty Gear Strive, although she appears briefly in the story mode.

SNK has yet to confirm Baiken for Samurai Shodown, although an announcement is expected soon.
