After it was announced over a year ago, Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection has finally been given a release date. The game will launch via the eShop on July 28 followed by a physical edition sometime this summer, SNK has announced.

Here’s a bunch of information about Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection as well as a trailer:

Switch currently has two Neo Geo Pocket Color games in its library with Samurai Shodown! 2 and SNK Gals’ Fighters. Could more titles from the system be made available on the console? There’s certainly a strong chance of that happening.

Dengeki Online has offered up a new look at Iroha in Samurai Shodown with a ton of footage. View the full video below.

Iroha is now available as a DLC character for Samurai Shodown on Switch.

SNK Gal’s Fighters, the classic fighter from the Neo Geo Pocket Color, launched on April 30 for the Nintendo Switch in Europe. Now, it has seemingly disappeared from the eShop. 

While the game is still currently available to purchase on the United States eShop, the link that previously belonged to it in Europe now results in a url that says “Not Found.” At this time it is unknown whether this is an error or a deliberate action but hopefully this issue will be addressed in the near future.


The next DLC character for Samurai Shodown has been dated. Iroha will be available in the fighting title on May 13, SNK has announced.

Here’s a trailer:

Aside from Iroha, Samurai Shodown Season Pass 2 features Mina Majikina and Sogetsu Kazama. One more character will be released in the future.

With SNK Gals’ Fighters arriving on the Switch eShop, SNK has released a few gameplay videos for the re-release of its Neo Geo Pocket Color title. We’ve included them below.
