Sharpen your sword and get that hakama washed, as Samurai Shodown V Special launches on PS4 and PS Vita tomorrow. If you’re new to SNK’s feudal fighter or need to refresh your memory on SSVS’ mechanics, the European PlayStation Blog has released a helpful combat guide to bring you up to speed.
Along with Deflects and Blade Catches which can help you turn your opponent’s momentum against them, Samurai Shodown V Special allows players to commit suicide if they are losing a round. While this may seem useless at first, it can be used tactically so you can go into the next round with a full Rage meter.
Samurai Shodown V Special is a Cross-Buy and Cross-Play game, meaning you can play it both at home on your PS4 and then take it on the road with your Vita. If you’re a PS Plus member, SSVS is also 20% off if you buy within its launch week.
