Coming to PS4, Switch, and PC (Steam and Epic Games Store) the Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection from SNK is a treasure trove of classic samurai sword fightin'. Because it features six classics: Samurai Shodown (1993), Samurai Shodown II (1994), Samurai Shodown III (1995), Samurai Shodown IV Amakusa's Revenge (1996), and Samurai Shodown V Special (2003). Each will be presented in full arcade-perfect mode, playable with either Japanese or Engligh audio.
Interestingly the collection will hit the Epic Games Store on June 11, before heading to Steam on June 18. Consoles versions will drop late July. The real kicker though (or slicer), is that Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection will be free to keep when it hits the Epic Games Store for the first week.
Here's the retro-filled announcement trailer.
SAMURAI SHODOWN released on the NEOGEO in 1993, followed by its sequel SAMURAI SHODOWN II in 1994, and the series became a trilogy in 1995 with SAMURAI SHODOWN III. Soon after SAMURAI SHODOWN IV AMAKUSA’S REVENGE came in 1996, and seven years later SAMURAI SHODOWN V was released in 2003, with SAMURAI SHODOWN V SPECIAL releasing the following year in 2004. Never before released to the public, SAMURAI SHODOWN V PERFECT is a mysterious final version of SAMURAI SHODOWN V that is the stuff of legends to SNK fans. Players can select between either Japanese or English MVS arcade versions for each title. Additionally, there are features such as scanlines for that retro flair, save functions, and arcade mode can even be set to FREE MODE meaning no more game overs!
As per above Samurai Shodown V is getting the extra special unreleased version previously limited to SNK vaults, and with all of the NeoGeo goodness of the first four games - this announcement is one of those 'mark your calendars' moments. For more info on these classics - head here.
