With a new Samurai Shodown looming, it seems that we’re about to see more stuff from the series, both in and out of game. One avenue for this is toys and collectibles, and one toymaker looks to be readying to make new figures for the franchise: Storm Collectibles has announced that they have acquired the license to create figures based on Samurai Shodown V Special. Details about what exact figures they’ll be making have yet to be announced.
Samurai Shodown V Special, known as Samurai Spirits Zero Special in Japan, is one of the more popular Samurai Shodown games for competitive play — right up there with the classic Samurai Shodown II. We’ve run a feature on this game back in 2014, detailing how it’s “one of the best fighting games you’ve never played”.
Storm Collectibles on the other hand is no stranger to the world of fighting game figures. Prior to this, they’ve released a number of excellent figures for Street Fighter, Tekken, and Mortal Kombat. You can check out their previous figures that we’ve covered here.
