Their menacing legacy has made an impact on the series as they’ve also appeared in Samurai Shodown III (1995), Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa’s Revenge (1996), and Samurai Shodown V Special (2004). Now, the boss that defined the series has returned. The DLC set contains four characters in total, with Cham Cham and Hibiki Takane already released.

In addition to the release of Samurai Shodown on Steam SNK Playmore have mentioned that a selection of SNK titles, including arcade classics such as Metal Slug, will be reduced for a limited time until 18th June 2021 at 7pm CEST. It’s worth noting that this is the same time that the promotion on Samurai Shodown is also expected to end.

Samurai Shodown is now available on Steam for Windows PC and is also available on other platforms such as Xbox Series, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
