Priced at £33.49, the Samurai Shodown NEOGEO Collection on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch follow on from the previous PC launch to deliver fans something pretty special, as the weapon-based fighter hits the modern day scene.

In place in the NEOGEO Collection are the original Samurai Shodown from 1993, the sequel Samurai Shodown II from 1994 and then the trilogy completer, Samurai Shodown III from the year after. They are then complemented by Samurai Shodown IV Amakusa’s Revenge from 1996, before gamers had to take in a 7 year wait for Samurai Shodown V in 2003.
