Two samurai silently face one another in a desolate field in feudal Japan. After a few seconds of tension, one of them suddenly draws his katana and strikes – yet his opponent blocks the attack just in time. As one samurai recoils, the other counters with a quick jab followed by a massive slash, slicing their enemy in half and concluding the battle in just a few strikes. This encounter is typical of Samurai Shodown, a gorgeous and gruesome fighting game set in feudal Japan that focuses heavily on strategy, timing, and making the most of every attack. After reviving its once-great fighting series on other platforms last year, SNK has finally brought this reboot of Samurai Shodown to Switch. So the question remains: can Samurai Shodown truly show up on Nintendo’s console?

Version 1.60 of Samurai Shodown is now available. Most importantly, this update adds the DLC character Mina Majikina to the game. Here’s the full list of changes:

  • A new DLC character (MINA MAJIKINA) was added.
  • Fixed other minor issues and features.
  • Galford Machine Gun Dog – Resolved an issue where under certain conditions, KOing an opponent while they’re being hit with Galford’s Machine Gun Dog attack resulted in standing instead of falling over.


During a lengthy live stream from Dengeki, Samurai Shodown’s new DLC character Mina Majikina was shown off in-depth. View the full recording below for a bunch of footage.

Samurai Shodown will be out for Switch in the west on February 25. Right around that time, we’ll be seeing a new DLC character. SNK announced today that Mina Majikina will be available on February 26.
