If you, fellow Nintendo Switch owners, are longingly looking at your other console friends playing the new Samurai Shodown, fret not. We’re getting the critically acclaimed, award-nominated samurai fighting game for the Nintendo Switch soon!
“SAMURAI SHOWDOWN’s upcoming release on the Nintendo Switch™ will mark the first time the series will be available on a Nintendo console in over 10 years,” says Yasuyuki Oda, Lead Producer of SAMURAI SHODOWN. “Fighting game fans will soon be able to pass a Joy-Con to an unsuspecting rival and unleash their fury anywhere around the world.”
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. Pre-order now and you can get a 10% discount as well.
