Now Playing: Samurai Shodown - Return Of A Legend Gameplay Trailer

If you have even the slightest inkling that you might ever want to play the newly-revived Samurai Shodown fighting game, head over to the US PlayStation Store: this week anyone can get the season one DLC pass for free, even if they don't yet own the game itself. Normally $20, the season one pass is free from now through 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET on July 2. If you're then eager to see those weapons clashing, you can save $10 when you buy the game itself from Amazon US.

Just released on June 25, Samurai Shodown is actually the 12th main entry in the eponymous fighting game series from Japanese developer SNK. The games have released on a variety of platforms, but most iconically on SNK's own Neo Geo. The series traditionally simplifies the often-complex combo-focused dueling of other fighting games into an accessible, but nuanced system of timing and anticipation. This latest iteration is no different, refreshing the still-solid basic mechanics with vivid graphics that are reminiscent of Street Fighter V. GameSpot's review is forthcoming.

If you're looking for more great PlayStation deals, check out the latest sale and weekly deals on US PSN. There's also a sale on MassGenie for one year of PS Plus for just $36. Amazon Prime Day is also right around the corner, so expect more great discounts on PS4 games and gear in the coming weeks.
