SNK is bringing Samurai Shodown back this year, and a brand new press release has revealed that the fighting game will be landing on PS4 and Xbox One on June 25, with a new trailer landing alongside this announcement as well.
Those who pre-order the game on PSN, Xbox Live, and other retailers will get the Season Pass for free until June 30 too, which will allow you to experience extra content aside from the new Dojo Mode, Story Mode, and more included in the base game.
"We're extremely excited to finally confirm that June 25th will see the much anticipated return of Samurai Shodown - one of the founding figures of the fighting genre," said Koichi Toyama, Company President at SNK. "As a thank you to the fans who have stuck with us during the long wait between the franchise instalments, we're pleased to offer the first 6 months of DLC completely free of charge to anyone who buys the game and redeems the game's season pass within the first week of release, which will include four new fighters."
The Dojo Mode lets players fight their own AI avatar to see how they play, or they can download other players' ghosts, which should help players train as the AI learns their moves and reproduces them.
"Dojo Mode has been a franchise aspiration for the team for some time now and an evolution to the fighting genre that we're very proud of," said SNK Lead Producer, Yasuyuki Oda. "Not only will it give players the opportunity to play against the ghosts of some of the best Samurai Shodown players in the world, but playing against your own ghost will prove an amazing tool to learn more about your own playstyle."
Samurai Shodown will be landing on Nintendo Switch in Q4, with PC coming at a later date, and for the new trailer take a look down below.
