SNK today announced the release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Samurai Shodown and a pre-order deal that includes the Neo Geo Pocket classic Samurai Shodown 2 for free.
The fighting game will be available on February 25 for Nintendo Switch in North America. Pre-orders for a physical copy also include a controller skin featuring Haohmaru and Yashamaru. The game will retail for $49.99.
“Samurai Shodown‘s upcoming release on the Nintendo Switch will mark the first time the series will be available on a Nintendo console in over 10 years,” says Yasuyuki Oda, the game’s lead producer. “Fighting game fans will soon be able to pass a Joy-Con to an unsuspecting rival and unleash their fury anywhere around the world.”
