In their ongoing PS2 to PS4 series of remasters, Sony has announced that the last 2D Samurai Shodown game, Samurai Shodown VI, is coming to the US PlayStation Network Store next Tuesday. This port of the arcade version contains pretty much every version of every character from the entire Samurai Shodown series, including four brand new “EX” characters which were exclusive to this console port.
Similar to the Grooves in Capcom vs. SNK 2, there is a Spirit Select system in Samurai Shodown VI, where players can choose between the six different fighting styles from previous Samurai Shodown games. If you are looking for a Samurai Shodown title which captures the entire history of this SNK series, this is the one to get. Unfortunately, due to the fact it is a straight port of the PS2 version, there will most likely be no online multiplayer–but there will be trophy support.
With the original Samurai Shodown scheduled to release on PSN before the end of the year, these last two months of 2016 act as the perfect time to become acquainted with the series.
