Samurai Shodown Anthology

Containing all 6 titles from this hugely popular franchise, Samurai Shodown Anthology details why this is among SNK's largest and popular franchises.

First appearing on the NEOGEO MVS system in July 93 the game soon gained a massive following who immediately took to the games unique fast paced, and sometimes brutal gameplay.

The games setting, use of sword based weapons and varied and memorable characters was a departure from other fighters released at that time. It was this 'out of the box' thinking that allowed this franchise to flourish amongst the competition of the day.

'Samurai Shodown set new standards in the fighting genre, and this has attributed to its ongoing success', says Peter Rollinson, Product Manager, Ignition Entertainment Ltd. 'this collection gives players the chance to see where the series came from. Where it goes in the future will be equally exciting'
