Such crossovers in fighting games are not uncommon as other titles have done the same. Notable examples include Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher III and 2B from NieR Automata appearing in Soulcalibur IV. Another is when Spawn and the Terminator made an appearance in Mortal Kombat 11.

Samurai Shodown is reboot of the acclaimed fighting game and the first entry in 11 years. The first game was released back in 1993 and the reboot was released in 2019 for all consoles and in 2020 for the PC. For Honor is an action fighting game set during the Middle Ages and was released in 2017.
