If you’re looking for some beat-em-up action with a retro vibe on a portable device, look no further than SNK’s Samurai Shodown. The developers are offering players a sweet 15% off Season Pass 1 from now through March 17th as well as a free copy of the Neo Geo Pocket classic Samurai Shodown! 2. Those who purchase a physical edition of the game will also receive a controller skin.
The game is playable anywhere, any time in TV Mode, table mode, and handheld mode. 1-2 players can duke it out in local battle or go online where 2-10 players take part in an epic battle.
“This latest entry keeps in line with the weapon-based fighting mechanics that the franchise helped popularize in 1993, as signature features like the Rage Gauge and Lightning Blade will return alongside a robust roster of new and familiar fighters. In addition to everything included above, Hisame Shizumaru from Samurai Shodown III will be included as a free character.
The game is also currently available on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
