SAMURAI SHODOWN VCharacter balancing!

The entire roster and battle system has been balanced from the previous title, SAMURAI SHODOWN V, to create one of the most tactical and exciting games in the series.

28 playable characters!

The game features a robust cast of 28 characters, including previous boss characters in the series such as Gaoh, Amakusa, Mizuki, and Zakuro. Plenty of fan favorites in the series see their return as well!

Gruesome fighting game action!

The most iconic addition to this entry in the series is the inclusion of character specific “Overkill Moves”, which can be used to finish off an opponent with style. These ultra-violent moves are available in the original NEOGEO version.
