Samurai Shodown – Return of a Legend

Koichi Toyama, Company President at SNK, also shared some good news:

“We’re extremely excited to finally confirm that June 25th will see the much anticipated return of Samurai Shodown – one of the founding figures of the fighting genre. As a thank you to the fans who have stuck with us during the long wait between the franchise installments, we’re pleased to offer the first 6 months of DLC completely free of charge to anyone who buys the game and redeems the game’s season pass within the first week of release, which will include four new fighters.”

SNK Lead Producer, Yasuyuki Oda, added:

“Dojo Mode has been a franchise aspiration for the team for some time now and an evolution to the fighting genre that we’re very proud of. Not only will it give players the opportunity to play against the ghosts of some of the best Samurai Shodown players in the world, but playing against your own ghost will prove an amazing tool to learn more about your own playstyle.”
