Samurai Spirits Is The Long-Awaited Return of Samurai Shodown

SNK announced that they are bringing back the beloved Samurai Shodown series in a big way with Samurai Spirits.

For those keeping score, it's been 10 years since we were given a new Samurai Shodown. Announced during Sony PlayStation's Tokyo Game Show warm-up with the trailer shown above. Scant details were given, but it’s possible that this is simply a remake of the original game using the power of Unreal Engine 4.

Otherwise, it could an all new re-imagining of the franchise, which was best remembered from the heyday of arcade fighters, together with legendary titles like Street Fighter and the The King of Fighters. For those unfamiliar, Samurai Spirits is actually the original Japanese title of Samurai Shodown,

It's safe to say Samurai Spirits will be available for the PlayStation 4, but we’ve yet to find out if it will be coming to other platforms. The official website for Samurai Spirits is already up, but good luck with the almost no information on there.

We’ll let you know as soon as we get more details.
