it's NOT Pachinko this time!
As promised earlier this month, SNK has announced a brand new fighting game...
and it's one that long-time SNK fans have been waiting for. A new Samurai
Spirits (or as we know it in the West, Samurai Shodown) is planned
for a 2019 release on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
The 2019 Samurai Shodown reboot will feature a new style of 3D graphics using the
Unreal Engine, and looks to retain the look and feel of the original 2D
series. The announce trailer (below) highlights the return of several fan-favorites
from the original cast.
The official press
release confirms that Samurai Spirits (2019) will indeed be
called Samurai Shodown in the West.
Below are some HD screenshots
along with some screen captures from the trailer.
This artwork briefly shown in
the trailer (seen below) also seems to pretty much confirm the return of
many series veterans not yet shown in gameplay, including Charlote,
Genjuro, Ukyo, Kyoshiro, and Tam Tam.
