New Samurai Shodown Game Announced by SNK

Sony’s TGS Live Tour brought with it the announcement of an all-new entry in a long-dormant series. Samurai Shodown/Samurai Spirits returns with an all-new entry in the series. Long before SoulCalibur’s debut entry popularized weapon-based fighters, Samurai Shodown set the stage with its large sprites, lush animation, and surprisingly realistic combat. It looks like this may be a reboot with polygonal models as everyone seems to have models based on their first incarnation – without the usage of later outfits or signs of aging. Samurai Shodown will be released in 2019, and looks like the bloodiest incarnation of the series to date – topping even Samurai Shodown Sen on the 360.
