CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED FIGHTER SAMURAI SHODOWN SLASHES ITS WAY TO NINTENDO SWITCH™ ON FEBRUARY 25 IN NORTH AMERICA

PRE-ORDER NOW TO RECEIVE THE NEO GEO POCKET CLASSIC SAMURAI SHODOWN! 2, A CONTROLLER SKIN AND A 10% DISCOUNT

 

 

Osaka, Japan, January 7, 2020 – SNK CORPORATION (Corporate HQ: Suita-city, Osaka, Japan, Company President & CEO: Koichi Toyama) has announced today that fighting game fans can pre-purchase the critically acclaimed, award-nominated SAMURAI SHODOWN for the Nintendo Switch right now to receive a 10% discount and also the Neo Geo Pocket classic SAMURAI SHODOWN! 2 completely free of charge. Pre-orders for a physical copy will also include a controller skin featuring Haohmaru and Yashamaru. SAMURAI SHOWDOWN will be available on February 25 for Nintendo Switch™ in North America.

 

 

“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. 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.
