Posted on September 3, 2021 by in News, Switch

A new update is now available for Samurai Shodown addressing a few issues. Check out the patch notes below:

This update fixes the following issues:

  • BAIKEN not able to Rage Explode after being Guard Crushed.
  • Specific moves not displaying properly when BAIKEN is disarmed.

Samurai Shodown first arrived on Switch in 2019, and since then has received many updates and significant pieces of DLC. Here’s an overview for the game:

Once again set in the late 18th century, after the events of Samurai Shodown V and prior to the events of the original game, Samurai Shodown will see the return of thirteen classic characters, including Haohmaru, Earthquake and Galford, who will be joined by three brand new characters to the series. Additional characters will also be available via post-launch DLC.

Developed in-house at SNK by the same team that brought us King of Fighters XIV, Samurai Shodown features a host of modes, such as Story, Practice, Online Battle and multiple offline battle modes. The new game will also debut an innovative new asynchronous online mode called “Dojo” that uses deep machine learning to create a CPU-avatar that learns from players’ actions during offline modes and creates a Ghost AI character. Players will be able to upload their Ghost to the leaderboards and also download Ghost data from other players. Players can take on Ghosts in 1v1 battle, or take on the Ironman Challenge and attempt to take down up to 100 ghosts in one go.
