Physical pre-orders also include a controller skin featuring Haohmaru and Yashamaru while supplies last.

 

 

“SAMURAI SHOWDOWN on Nintendo Switch™ gives fans the chance to pick up a Joy-Con and Crescent Moon Slash their enemies to pieces from anywhere on the planet,” says Yasuyuki Oda, Lead Producer of SAMURAI SHODOWN. “We can’t wait to witness a fresh group of warriors slice their way to victory as the game’s original roster of icons and brand new Season Pass characters.”

 

SAMURAI SHOWDOWN’s first Season Pass fighters, RIMURURU, BASARA, KAZUKI KAZAMA and WAN-FU, are now available. The first character of the title’s Season Pass 2 roster, MINA, will be available later this month. She will be joined by SOGETSU KAZAMA, IROHA and a mysterious fourth combatant in the near future. SHIZUMARU HISAME is also making it to the Nintendo Switch roster as a free DLC. 

 

Alongside a captivating art style and a range of competitive in-game modes, SAMURAI SHOWDOWN on Nintendo Switch™ features a unique approach to weapons-based combat.
