After releasing on the PS4 and Xbox One, Samurai Shodown will be gracing the Nintendo Switch this year. The Samurai Shodown release date is December 12 in Japan. So far no release date outside the region has been announced for Samurai Shodown, but if you need your Tenmei Era fighting game fix, you’ll be able to grab it from the Nintendo eShop for Japan for JPY 6,345 (around Rs. 4,300).
In addition to this, the Samurai Shodown frame rate has been revealed as well. Unlike Astral Chain and some high profile Switch ports like Attack on Titan 2, the Samurai Shodown frame rate is 60fps. What’s more is, it supports single Joy-Con per player multiplayer too. Pre-ordering the game will net you the Switch version of Samurai Shodown! 2. This was originally released for Neo Geo Pocket Color in April 1999.
No details regarding the season pass or character roll out have been revealed for the Nintendo Switch version of Samurai Shodown yet.
Samurai Shodown initially released on PS4 and Xbox One on June 25 in US and Europe with a June 27 launch in Japan.
