The latest instalment takes place one year before the events of the original Samurai Shodown game.

The Nintendo Switch version has been designed to be played in handheld more as well as docked and it will be easier than ever to battle a friend utilising the Switch’s Table Top mode.

Fan favourites Rimururu, Kubikiri Basara, Kazuki Kazama and Wan Fu will make their return. In addition Hisame Shizumaru from Samurai Shodown II is included as a free character.

Samurai Shodown is expected to be released in Q1 of 2020.
