Samurai Shodown Slashes Its Way Onto Xbox One This June

If you have ever considered yourself and SNK fighting game fan, then this tidbit of news will definitely be of interest to you. SNK, the creators of fighting game series like King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, and Art of Fighting, have recently announced the return of their weapon-based fighter Samurai Shodown is coming to variou platforms, including the Xbox One.

The new game is powered by Unreal Engine 4, as the new Samurai Shodown reboots the classic 2D fighting game with beautiful new 3D graphics that retain the classic fantasy Samurai manga look of the series, while also bringing the series up-to-date with the latest cutting edge graphical standards.

For those looking for some kind of story, well, you’ll once again find yourself in the late 18th century, after the events of Samurai Shodown V and 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.

Wow, we are quite surprised with this annoncement, and hope that fighting fans and SNK fans alike are happy with this announcement.
