Recently, we’ve seen a lot of negative things added to the hobby we love. Cosmetic items that cost as much as an expansion, day one content sold separately, stuff exclusive to specific brands and countless more things. However, Samurai Shodown is simply giving players the opportunity to get the first season pass for free.
While PlayStation owners can freely download it, the free offer is exclusive to anyone who purchase Samurai Shodown before June 30 on Xbox. Those anyone who chooses to purchase the pass will get the first four characters and the Retro 3D Nakoruru skin for free. This will cover players until Feb. 2020 or so and have the following tentative release dates:
- Rimururu – Aug. 2019
- Basara – Oct. 2019
- Kazuki Kazama – Dec. 2019
- Wan-Fu – Feb. 2020
For those who haven’t checked Samurai Shodown out, it’s a rather unusual fighting game. Instead of relying on combos, players need to simply out think their opponent and punish mistakes. It also rewards those willing to make risky plays, making it a delight for hardcore players and impossible for button mashers. If this sounds good, the title is currently available for download on Xbox and PlayStation, with PC and Switch coming later this year.
