Could Samuro be the Next Hero in the Nexus?

Recommended Posts

It looks like there have been a few easter eggs posted to the /r/heroesofthestorm sub-reddit that could hint at the release of the next hero after Zarya and Alarak for Heroes of the Storm. Check them out!

The post on Reddit came after a number of Korean players were invited to test the newest maps. The OP, user rost473, had this to say:

In korea community 'Inven', was found easter egg of Blade Master 'Samuro' in Braxis Holdout map

then click on 'Hots' logo button at 'SAMURO SHODOWN'(It was clearly parody to SNK's game 'Samurai Shodown') arcade machine...

 

Blade Master 'Samuro' (or Sammyro?) was THE NEXT HERO CONFIRMED!!

Source: 'Inven' 펠릭스님

Could this be confirmation of the latest hero to be joining the Nexus? It's definitely possible that another Warcraft hero could join the fray, but is there any other proof?

OPrime, the coach for TempoStorm, also posted this image that hints at a Blademaster's banner in the background of the Machines of War artwork:

So, here's the question: who is Samuro?

Some of you might know him from Warcraft III, others may have never played the game. He was an orcish Blademaster from the Burning Blade clan. After his village was decimated by a wildkin, a form of wild moonkin, he hunted the beast and killed it. He went on to aid Rexxar, Rokhan and Chen Stormstout in their mission by sabotaging the structures of a Kul Tiras (an Alliance faction) base, allowing them to continue with their mission. 

Regardless of the outcome, this would be a seriously cool addition to the game!

Seeing how the 4chan guy was correct this far. wouldn't be surprised at all. the only thing that surprised me so far was Alarak

Yeah, I feel like Alarak was a serious curve ball! My reaction to Zarya was huge excitement, but definitely felt slightly expected. Alarak I was just like "OMG"

I'm beyond hyped if Samuro joins the Nexus too tbh

im frankly amazed at the microscopic level of detail that fans are able to pick out. pretty much every prediction has proved to have some credibility and accuracy. its just shocking to me what people are able to notice that i remain completely oblivious to XD

How did you not know how to decode the code that was hidden in another 3 codes that was in another language that was so tiny you needed a magnifying glass to see it in a mirror on a window?

What has been bugging me for a while now is the Garrosh reference in Overwatch.  In the starting area with all of the arcade games they have Fighters of the Storm 1,2 and 3 and all of the characters are already in game.  Except Garrosh who is fighting against Kerrigan.  When they did the early access beta weekend I saw it and freaked out thinking Garrosh would be next to the Nexus.  Alas, there hasn't been any indication since.

My main point is that Blizzard has been really creative with their easter eggs lately, which I love, but they don't all end up happening right away.  So even if Samuro isn't the very next hero to show up this is still a really cool egg and I applaud the guys who were able to find it.  I know I never would have!!

There's a lot of people inspecting everything frame by frame... I try do to the same thing as you but 2 options always come to me: 1. lose patience and ragequit 2. tomorrow there will be an article somewhere with everything hidden listed in it.

Pretty much my way of thinking :D

I can't find it, but as someone said above, there's a 4chan post that "leaks" information about future releases. Samuro was actually one of the supposed hero releases that has been planned for a while, so I'm praying it's true. He was meant to be some sort of stealth blademaster, if I remember right!

I'm still waiting for Maghda

Now that would be an interesting one, in what role? Specialist caster? Could maybe even work similar to Abathur and be able to "evolve" allies into more powerful versions like she does in the boss fight

I'd rather have Leiah. Fuck her and her butterflies for killing Cain >:(

Garrosh is just one of those characters that simply was always going to be an addition to Heroes of the Storm.

 

Also, for the record:

Spoiler

Garrosh was in the latest 4chan leak as a character in development back 7 or so weeks ago, along with 24 other unannounced characters and Zarya.

All of said characters were said to not be characters to expect anytime soon, but again, the list did have Zarya, and we saw how that turned out.

      Deathwing will be nerfed in a future balance patch. We're looking at more general nerfs across the board, mainly to Destroyer form, overall talent tuning, and some World Breaker buffs.

      Hey Calcaz!
      We get enough data, even with a massive ban rate. Of course, as more data comes in we’re more confident with where things sit, but we have always had enough data to make educated changes before the first balance patch after a new hero release. After the first balance patch, we always have an even more clear picture of where things stand since we have that much more time for data to come in.
      Balance patch is looking good!
      For Deathwing, more general nerfs across the board, particularly to Destroyer form. Also some World Breaker buffs and talent tuning.
      Can’t confirm dates. Confirming dates is the path to the dark side.
