SNK releasing new — and free — Samurai Shodown V Special themes for PlayStation 4 & PS Vita

Samurai Shodown V Special was one of our favorite re-releases here at SRK in 2017. This is both because it’s a fantastic game in SNK’s retro library, and because its got surprisingly decent online play — something that usually doesn’t happen with a reissue like this. It seems like we’re not the only ones impressed by the re-release, as SNK made this announcement:

Starting today (Friday), you can get the above Samurai Shodown V Special themes for your PlayStation 4 and Vita, adorning your home screen with Yoshitora and Haohmaru. It’s timed perfectly to coincide with the SamSho side tournament at Evo Japan this weekend — and hopefully, more awareness (and events) for Samurai Shodown V will follow!
