Show some (controller) skin with a new pre-order bonus for the Switch version of Samurai Shodown

It won’t be long before you can embrace death with the Switch version of Samurai Shodown, as SNK has just announced that it will bundle a free controller skin to those who pre-order the physical version of the game, which will be released on February 25. The Switch version of the game will also include Samurai Shodown III’s Hisame Shizumaru as a free character.

SNK CORPORATION (Corporate HQ: Suita-city, Osaka, Japan, Company President & CEO: Koichi Toyama) has announced today that fighting game fans can pre-purchase the critically acclaimed, award-nominated SAMURAI SHODOWN for the Nintendo Switch right now to receive a 10% discount and also the Neo Geo Pocket classic SAMURAI SHODOWN! 2 completely free of charge. Pre-orders for a physical copy will also include a controller skin featuring Haohmaru and Yashamaru. SAMURAI SHOWDOWN will be available on February 25 for Nintendo Switch™ in North America.

This latest entry keeps in line with the weapon-based fighting mechanics that the franchise helped popularize in 1993, as signature features like the Rage Gauge and Lightning Blade will return alongside a robust roster of new and familiar fighters. In addition to everything included above, Hisame Shizumaru from SAMURAI SHODOWN III will be included as a free character.

SAMURAI SHODOWN for Nintendo Switch™ will launch on February 25 for $49.99 USD. Players who pre-order the physical version today can look forward to receiving both the port of SAMURAI SHODOWN! 2 (originally released on Neo Geo Pocket), and a bonus controller skin as well.
