Some cool news for Nintendo Switch owners as SNK has announced they will be bringing Samurai Shodown to the console in Q1 2020. Players will be getting the current incarnation of the game, which includes Hisame Shizumaru added as a free character. But it’s unknown whether the currently released DLC characters will be added or if you’ll still need to add them individually. As a bonus to those who pre-order, SNK will include a free download of Samurai Shodown! 2, developed for SNK’s Neo Geo Pocket, available for the first time ever on a current-gen console. We’ll let you know when a release date pops around.
