It’s SNK’s pleasure to introduce our latest high-quality compilation together with developer Digital Eclipse: Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection, releasing today on PlayStation 4.
The groundbreaking weapon-based fighting game series Samurai Shodown first hit the arcades in 1993 on the NeoGeo MVS (Multi Video System) arcade cabinets and on the NeoGeo AES (Advanced Entertainment System) home console as well.
Thanks to the entire Digital Eclipse team, as well as writer and video director Brandon Sheffield and Samurai Shodown V director Koji Takaya, SNK has finally been able to officially release the fabled ultimate version of the fifth and final NeoGeo installment in the series.
Samurai Shodown V Perfect is a previously unreleased (but finished) update to Samurai Shodown V Special, and is the last official game ever pressed to a NeoGeo ROM. With its release today in 2020, it is certainly the last official NeoGeo game from SNK. Digital Eclipse has even translated the ROM into English!
