It’s coming up three decades since Samurai Shodown first wowed the world with its blade-wielding fighting options, but today we see a full reboot taking place as SNK faithfully reproduce the game for a modern day player!

Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and PS4, the Samurai Shodown reboot is the first Shodown title to worm its way into the lives of gamers for 11 years, with a brand new experience complete with stunning visuals and high-end gameplay.

Priced up at £49.99, Samurai Shodown on Xbox One and PS4 features not just the iconic characters from yesteryear, but three all-new fighters for us to get to grips with, and with a story that is set one year before the very first game, and the opportunity for SNK to go all out with a revolutionary AI system which learns your tactics.

Further still, this 2019 reboot of Samurai Shodown looks great too, with Unreal Engine 4 powered things behind the scenes to ensure that the legacy of this Samurai is continued with aplomb.

If you wish to give it a shot then heading to the Xbox Store or the PlayStation Store will sort you out with a download. Let us know in the comments below if we’ll be finding you wielding this latest blade.
