About Samurai Shodown
Since its inception in 1993, the Samurai Shodown series, known for its breathtaking battles and stunning characters, has redefined weapon-based fighting games. In 2019 – 11 years after the last edition – Samurai Shodown continued this tradition. The new game is set in 18th century Japan, three years before the original game, and sees the return of thirteen fan-favorite characters. They are joined by three new characters. Among the protagonists of Samurai Shodown III, Shizumaru Hisame joins the fight alongside Gongsun Li in the popular mobile game Honor of Kings. Additional characters are available through the 1st and 2nd season pass, with the third also releasing today. Classic Samurai Shodown concepts like Rage Gauge, Lightning Blade and Super Special Moves have also returned and allow players to turn the tables on their enemies even when they are close to defeat.
