This game is hard – even on the easiest difficulty plays well looks great Genjuro kicks ass

but please note THERE ARE NO SECRET CHARACTERS even though the manual says that there are 3. These chracters are only available in Samurai Shodown 5 Special.


The Samurai Shodown series has also been known for its willingness to tinker with its unique fighting system, and has resulted in a number of changes over the years. This instalment is no different, and offers several new features for the dedicated player. Characters can meditate in the heat of battle to affect their stats, and even slow down time for their opponent. Old faithfuls return, and talented gamers can throw their weapons down and fight unarmed.

Fans of SNKs fighting games have been clamouring for an update to the Samurai Shodown series, says Peter Rollinson, Product Manager, Ignition Entertainment. They feel very different to the King of Fighters games and offer a completely different style of gameplay to other 2D fighters. Samurai Shodown V is the most complete and refined iteration yet.
