Fans living in North America will be happy to know that SNK’s new version of Samurai Showdown will be playable later this month at the PAX East 2019 event.
This is a new version of Samurai Showdown releasing this June for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles. The game will then be out at a later for the gamers on PC and Nintendo Switch.
This new version of the game is in full 3D using the power of Unreal Engine 4. Even though the game is in 3D, the gameplay will retain its 2D fighting mechanics.
You can read more information about the game from the press release info that has been released down below.
“Once again set in the late 18th century, after the events of Samurai Shodown Vand prior to the events of the original game, Samurai Shodown will see the return of thirteen classic characters, including Haohmaru, Earthquake and Galford, who will be joined by three brand new characters to the series. Additional characters will also be available via post-launch DLC.
Developed in-house at SNK by the same team that brought us King of Fighters XIV, Samurai Shodown features a host of modes, such as Story, Practice, Online Battle and multiple offline battle modes. The new game will also debut an innovative new asynchronous online mode called “Dojo” that uses deep machine learning to create a CPU-avatar that learns from players’ actions during offline modes and creates a Ghost AI character. Players will be able to upload their Ghost to the leaderboards and also download Ghost data from other players. Players can take on Ghosts in 1v1 battle, or take on the Ironman Challenge and attempt to take down up to 100 ghosts in one go.
The public will be able to play Samurai Shodown for the first time on the show floor at PAX East in Boston, March 28 – March 31. PAX East attendees can also attend the Samurai Shodown – Resurrecting a Legend panel, Saturday, March 30 from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. EDT. The panel will be moderated by Team Spooky’s Giby and feature SNK’s Yasuyuki Oda (Producer), Nobuyuki Kuroki (Game Director) and the Director of the original Samurai Shodown, Yasushi Adachi, as well as several others from SNK.”
