Samurai Shodown V Special for PlayStation 4

When the fighting games genre were almost ruled by games like King of Fighters or Street Fighter franchise, only couple of other titles make a stand out of the flow. Samurai Shodown just didn't made a difference but also created a whole new unique sub-genre esque category, which is sword-fighting. The most renowned version of the series was Samurai Shodown V Special, which is about to release on to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in its original glory.

The creator studio of SNK believes the game should be introduced to the players as it was actually intended to and here goes a teaser of what we are about to get.




Samurai Shodown title started gaining attention after the release of its fourth installment but the one that truly conquered all was Samurai Shodown V Special. It has created its own place into the fighting game community of both SNK and other companies. The franchise was deadlier and brutal compared to other fighting games of all sorts because of the weapon the characters wielded in-game. On top of that, the overkill fatality moments are top notch gore.

The original arcade version of Samurai Shodown V Special was way lot gory than we found it upon release. Because of its controversial level of violence and an incident in Japan regarding the game has delayed its release. When it finally came out, the fans and gamers in general noticed that the game is heavily censored and that last moment censoring also resulted in unexpected bugs every now and then. Even though SNK acted out quickly in response, the damage was only partially fixed.

With all the original features of the game plus, an online multiplayer mode, trophy support and a gallery mode that will be unlockable with art. Thanks to Code Mystics that this is the first time the original version SNK intended to release is now coming to consoles. Though a certain release date is still to be announced but we can hope that it will probably come out in late summer 2017.
