Samurai Riot Definitive Edition

Today, publisher Hound Picked Games and Wako Factory announced that they’re putting Samurai Riot Definitive Edition on Switch. The 2D co-op beat ’em up title will be available on June 1, 2022.

Samurai Riot originally released in 2017, but it’ll now be available on Nintendo’s console with new features and enhancements. There’ll be new animation running at 60 frames per second, new dialogue, pixel perfect stability and optimization which is ten times lighter than the initial version, slicker and improved combos, and updated backgrounds and ambiance.

Wako Factory co-founder and art director Charlotte Buchet said the team “wanted to release Samurai Riot Definitive Edition on Switch because it’s an ‘old-school’ cooperative game and the switch perfectly embodies the ‘couch game’ aspect that we imagined, both in your living room or at a picnic table.”

Here’s some additional information about the game:

Fans of this genre can look forward to a visual treat, where a backdrop story compels the player to really think about their decisions in game and the ramifications of their choices. Having been hired to bring peace and tranquility to the warring land, each choice you make as a Samurai, Tsurumaru / Sukane, will have an influence on your destiny and, with an arsenal of deadly attacks at your disposal, the fight to make it through each battle will require guile, skill and forethought!

Samurai Riot offers a plethora of choices and features including both solo and cooperative play, where the story immerses both players equally, with a multi-branching storyline, complete with eight different endings. Conversely, you could enter a PVP fight against your partner to win the lead! The more you play, the more you accumulate points to unlock new fighting schools for better replay value.

Easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master, Samurai Riot Definitive Edition rewards the more demanding gamer with deeper content. Players can choose from 14 fighting schools that add a plethora of gameplay variation to the character’s moves and the devastation they can unleash upon their enemies.
