SNK have announced a collection of their long-running fighting franchise, Samurai Shodown, during a panel at PAX East 2019, which you can check out below. The collection will include six games from the classic fighting franchise, Samurai Shodown 1 through 5, as well as V Special, an updated version of Samurai Shodown V. The collection encompasses the entire catalogue of mainline games that saw releases on SNK’s NeoGeo game system.
The collection is being handled by Digital Eclipse, who have worked on several similar collections over the past years, including the first Mega Man Legacy Collection, The Disney Afternoon Collection, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, and most recently SNK 40th Anniversary Collection.
While no release date was given, it was stated the anthology would launch this fall on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
Meanwhile, if you’re more worried about what lies ahead rather than looking forward to re-releases of past games, there’s more Samurai Shodown coming later this year as well. In fact, at the same panel, SNK also revealed a new character that’s being added to this year’s sequel. Check her out through here.
