Samurai Shodown Coming to Consoles on June 25th
With the release of Samurai Shodown fast approaching on June 25th, a new trailer, “Samurai Shodown 101”, has been released to give longtime fans and newcomers alike a better understanding of the newest title in this legendary fighting game series. Revealing all-new information about the upcoming title and showing off as-of-yet unrevealed concepts such as Dojo Mode, this is the entry to the new game you won’t want to miss. You can check out the trailer below:
SNK and Athlon Games have also announced that players who pre-order or buy the game. be it digitally or at their favourite gaming store, will be able to download the Season Pass absolutely free until June 30th (psssst, regional restrictions may apply).
Officially a prequel to the original 1993 Samurai Shodown, the latest title’s Story Mode allows players to choose any character and experience their journey - from franchise favorites like Haohmaru and Charlotte to newcomers like Wu-Ruixiang and Darli Dagger. Several other modes will be present as well, including a Training Mode, Online Play and the all-new Dojo Mode.
As fighters continue to play and level up their skills, the game is watching, learning, calculating and mapping its user’s playstyle in the offline battle modes in order to create an online “ghost” that replicates that style in Dojo Mode. Players can take on their own AI-derived avatar for better insight into their own weaknesses, or download the ghost of a favorite player from the cloud for a fresh challenge. These intelligent AI ghosts promise to change the way fighting game aficionados train and compete forever.
We think it is great that SNK is bringing back one of their signature titles, and we hope you are too.
