SAMURAI SHODOWN has been given the official release date of February 25, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch. Those who pre-order the game can receive a 10% discount as well as the Neo Geo Pocket classic SAMURAI SHODOWN! 2 completely free of charge. Pre-ordering the physical edition of the game will net you an exclusive controller skin featuring Haohmaru and Yashamaru.
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.
SAMURAI SHODOWN for Nintendo Switch™ will launch on February 25 for $49.99 USD. Players who pre-order the physical version today can look forward to receiving both the port of SAMURAI SHODOWN! 2 (originally released on Neo Geo Pocket), and a bonus controller skin as well.
