A modest size for a big return.
The revival of SNK’s classic fighting franchise, Samurai Shodown, is less than a month away from launch. Of course, those looking to unleash the samurai spirit will also be wondering how much HDD space they’ll need to have. As it turns out, not all that much, as the game seems to be pretty modest in its file size.
As seen on the Microsoft store listing, the Xbox One version of the game will only be 19.83 GB. It’s a very modest size for a game by modern standards. Of course, that number will not include any day one patch, and may not be 1:1 with other versions, though most likely it will be close to the PS4 version and the eventual PC release, with the scheduled Nintendo Switch release getting compressed down a bit more.
Samurai Shodown will launch June 25th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, in Q4 2019 for Switch, and a PC version will follow at an undetermined date. The game will feature 16 characters, including 3 original newcomers.
