About Samurai Shodown
Since its arrival in 1993, the SAMURAI SHODOWN franchise has been known for its breathtaking battles and characters and for redefining gun fighting games. In 2019 – 11 years after the last release – SAMURAI SHODOWN continued this tradition.
The new game is located in Japan, during the 18th century, three years before the original game and players will be able to see up to 13 of its most mythical characters again. This cast is joined by three new characters. Among them are SAMURAI SHODOWN III protagonist Shizumaru Hisame; with GONGSUN LI from the popular mobile game Honor of Kings.
Players can add new characters to those already available if they have one. Or pick up Season Pass 1 and 2 or Season Pass 3, which will be released in February 2021. Classic concepts from the Samurai Shodown series like the Rage Gauge, Lightning Blade, and Super Special Moves are also returning to the game. That will help players turn the game around even when they are about to die.
On March 16, 2021, the latest version of this saga will be released on Xbox Series X | S. On Xbox Series X, the game will run at 120 FPS. Owners of previous generation versions of the game will be able to enjoy the title on their new generation consoles, Xbox Series X | S, at no additional cost thanks to Smart Delivery, which will even import the DLCs that they already had purchased.
For all fans of fighting games who also want to have their physical copy of SAMURAI SHOWDOWN, Koch Media will publish its physical edition that will also come with a bonus: the Season Pass 1, which includes 4 additional characters and a new skin. The new character, Cham Cham, will also join the already great cast of characters as soon as his DLC goes on sale. The physical version of the game will be available both in physical stores and online stores.
Both the digital and physical version of SAMURAI SHODOWN for Xbox Series X | S will be priced at € 54.99.
