Samurai Spirits Oni 【サムライスピリッツ鬼】 is the next Samurai Spirits game coming after Sen, and will be released for pachinko slot machines in October 2011.
It is a reboot of the series and is considered a new title entry. The main illustrator for the game is Hiroaki Samura (author of famed manga Mugen no Juunin / Blade of the Immortal, from which several SS characters took major inspiration). Thus, many characters got updated costumes, and Haohmaru and Nakoruru looking not unlike Manji and Rin from Mugen no Juunin.

__(same video) anime Intro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM54fK0j6Vk#t=5m51s (intro song: "Break Deadlock")

Characters shown are:
___SS1___
Haohmaru - his look is closer to "transition from young to old" character version, so he is a bit older, lacks long hair bangs on his forehead, and his costume already has kanji written on his back (and now modified with fur on his shoulders). His face was seemingly drawn with similarities to Manji, male protagonist of Blade of the Immortal manga. His Tenha Fuujin Zan is now a serie of horizontal spinning slashes
Nakoruru (&Mamahaha/Shikuru) - completely new ainu outfit, now too outlined with fur, and having no baggy pants anymore. Now wears headband the same way as in NakoADV game. Her face was seemingly drawn with similarities to Rin, male protagonist of Blade of the Immortal manga.
Hanzo - in his SS64 outfit but has no mandatory scar on left eye
Galford - in his SS1 outfit but with shoulder pads removed completely
Ukyo - now wears earrings and has black hair, with left-sided part of it being tied together in a braid of sorts (this combines both his loose hairstyle from 2D games and fully tied hairstyle from 3D games)
Jubei
Kyoshiro - in his SS1 outfit
Charlotte - in her SS1 outfit
Tam Tam - in his SS4 outfit
Earthquake
Amakusa - modified outfit with now spiky collar, and his face is not feminine anymore
___SS2___
Genjuro - now has brown hair, wears some sort of necklace/lavalier, and has tsuba of his katana shaped like a nightingale with head above/tail below/wings on sides(according to official artbooks from older games, it was shaped like a nightingale with head below and wings raised in flight before) see the old and new tsuba comparison
Nicotine
___SS3___
Shizumaru
Rimururu - new outfit
Basara
___SS4___
Kazuki - now has light brown hair and yellow outfit
Sogetsu
___SS64___
Shiki - completely new, regal-looking outfit decorated with snake ornaments (similar to those she had in Han-In form before). New tattoos. New look for her sword hilts (now they look like interwined snakes instead of simply being a hilt connected to a ring)
___SS5___
Mina & Champuru
___SS6___
Iroha
___Original___
Oruhida (堕日堕, oruhida) - Original character, voiced by Eri Kitamura. Has a costume decorated with chains and a lock, is armed with a scythe and is capable to use black magic similar to that of Amakusa. Her name is more that likely a pun on "orchid", a flower sticked in her hair.

Incredible art, visuals and animation and it's yet another pachinko game... :zankuro:
But with possible KOF13 success they can reboot SS and LB series as well.
Let's hope for the best!
