About Samurai Shodown

Samurai Shodown has enjoyed worldwide success as a blade-wielding fighting game series since its first release in 1993. 11 years have passed since the last series installment, and it is now time for Samurai Shodown to return in a brand-new game featuring high-end visuals and gameplay!

Faithfully reproducing the game mechanics and atmosphere that contributed to the success of the series, Samurai Shodown includes a revolutionary feature that learns from players game actions and patterns in order to create CPU-controlled “ghost” characters. With a story set one year before the very first installment, a diverse cast of returning and new characters cross paths in order to fulfill their destinies!

About Samurai Shodown! 2 – Pocket Fighting Series

Samurai Shodown!2, developed by SNK and published in 1999 for the Neo Geo Pocket Color handheld console, made its debut on Nintendo Switch! Pix’n Love Games invites you to discover this legend of the 2D fighting game in an exclusive physical version! It is also the first time in 20 years that a title from the prestigious Neo Geo Pocket Color game library has been available on another console.

Pre-orders will begin on December 18, 2019 at 5pm CET, with an estimated shipping window of Q1 2020.
