Samurai Shodown has enjoyed worldwide success as a blade-wielding fighting game series since its first release in 1993. 11 years have passed since the last series installment, and it is now time for Samurai Shodown to return in a brand-new game featuring high-end visuals and gameplay! Faithfully reproducing the game mechanics and atmosphere that contributed to the success of the series, Samurai Shodown includes a revolutionary feature that learns from players’ game actions and patterns in order to create CPU-controlled “ghost” characters. With a story set one year before the very first installment, a diverse cast of returning and new characters cross paths in order to fulfill their destinies!
- LEGACY: The same tense, high-damage single strike battles that the series is known for!
- EVOLUTION: Using the power of UNREAL ENGINE 4, the game achieves a level of detail never before seen for this beloved series!
- REVOLUTION: Take on the top players in the world through a revolutionary AI system that learns player patterns and creates “Ghost” clones for you to take on in head-to-head battles.
The game is available on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia and PC via Epic Games Store. The Steam version launches on June 14th. Check out the official site to find out more.
