Samurai Shodown version 2.1.0 update patch notes
- Added DLC character: Cham Cham will release the same day this update goes live.
- Added the Guard Crush function: An internal Guard Crush meter increases whenever an opponent blocks regular and special attacks. The opponent will be able to be Guard Crushed once they turn red. Landing a standing heavy slash during this phase will perform a Guard Crush. Just Defending an opponent’s attack will not reduce one’s internal Guard Crush meter. Also, Just Defending can prevent one from being Guard Crushed when glowing red.
- Weapons can now be picked up even if scrolled off screen: Press the button to pick up your weapon while touching the edge of the screen where the weapon previously was to pick it up.

Samurai Shodown Xbox India release
As of now, Samurai Shodown is still not available on Xbox One in India. The digital release has not been made available here. Hopefully the Samurai Shodown Xbox Series X release will see it release here. That has happened in the past like in the case of Dead Cells or Valkyria Chronicles 4 where the game was not available in India digitally on Xbox until the DLC bundle released.
Samurai Shodown is out now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store. It will release on March 16 for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
