Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection Comes With Never-Before-Released Game

The upcoming Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC compilation will feature Samurai Shodown V Perfect, the cancelled final Neo Geo release.

9 Comments

A new trailer for Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection has been released, and it reveals that the new compilation will contain a game never released before. One of the seven games included in the upcoming Switch, PS4, and PC collection is Samurai Shodown V Perfect--an updated version of the final Neo Geo entry with new content.

The game, which was meant to be the final release for the Neo Geo, was cancelled despite being completed--and now fans of the series will be able to play it for the first time. You can see it in action below.

Seven games in total will be included as part of the compilation:

  • Samurai Shodown (1993)
  • Samurai Shodown II
  • Samurai Shodown III
  • Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa's Revenge
  • Samurai Shodown V
  • Samurai Shodown V Special
  • Samurai Shodown V Perfect

Each game has been updated for online play, complete with rollback netcode for a smooth experience. You'll be able to choose between ranked and casual matches. A new museum mode contains concept art, design documents, and video interviews with the game's developers, and a music player will let you listen to over 200 tracks from the series.

The game will come to the Epic Games Store on June 11, Steam on June 18, and both the PlayStation Store, Nintendo Eshop, and Xbox on July 28. It will cost $40 normally, but for its first week on the Epic Games Store, it'll be available for free.

A new game in the series, again titled Samurai Shodown, is also available on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Why do people get upset about Epic Store exclusive? Walmart, Target, Gamespot and other stores do it all the time....

Epic Store and other retailers should give you free stuff.... What do you think they do with the data they collect when you shop at their stores? Make money with it.

@kintoneo: I'd honestly rather pay for the game and give SNK money than deal with the free Epic store BS. Sad, but true.

@bigbeanie: If it gets put up on GOG, I'll get it there. Not even touching Epic after what they pulled with other games being pulled from Steam and elsewhere AFTER they had been sold as preorders to boot. I don't give underhanded businesses my patronage, even if it's "free".
