People rant about Samurai Shodown 2019 too slow for modern fighting game fans. SNK is trying to stay true to Samurai Shodown mythos. The past Samurai Shodown games have slow mechanics back in the retro arcade days. If Samurai Shodown was fast people will complaint about it. Modern fighting game enthusiasts love fast pace fighting games like Soul Calibur 6, Tekken 7 and DragonBall FighterZ. Especially Marvel Vs Capcom and Super Smash Bros Ultimate ( I will take about this in a later blogpost). For those who are living under a rock and new to SamSho. Samurai Shodown is a 2D fighting game developed by SNK Playmore in the 1993. The gameplay is a blend of traditional Japanese style with weapons. There is another game that rivals Samurai Shodown is The Last Blade. SamSho has powerups like chicken and bombs.
During a fight, there is a referee named Kuroko that judges the match. The game have little influence of Mortal Kombat. For example, getting slice in two at the end of the match. Samsho have a rage meter which you can pull off Super Moves and increase damage. You can disarm opponents and pick up weapons in sequels. Most of the game storyline sets in 1780s in Tenmei era. The first game doesn’t start the timeline but Samurai Shodown V. Samurai Shodown 2019 starts after V, 1993 series comes over the reboot. The game have historical figures like Hanzo Hattori, Amakusa Shiro Tokisada, Jubei Yaggu and more. Samsho is well-known for it’s presentation with Kaiji and oriental Japanese music. The series is not as popular as Street Fighter.
Samurai Shodown 2019 good fighter
Samurai Shodown has a identity on it’s own. Back to Samurai Shodown 2019 is a solid game in my opinion. The graphics is crispy and artistic reminds me of old school japan. SamSho 2019 is back like never before. There is three new characters Wu-Ruixiang, Yashamaru Kurama and Darli Dagger. Some recurring characters from past SamSho games. The gameplay is very similar to previous installments of Samurai Shodown. Samurai Shodown too slow gameplay doesn’t affect player’s experience with it. The game doesn’t have combos that players can execute. SamSho allows players to test their wits and strategy for combat. Past fighting games uses combos and flashy attacks. SamSho is not have fast pace attacks and gameplay.
I understand people not liking Samurai Shodown due to slow pace gameplay. Samurai Shodown 2019 is not everyone cup of tea. I still enjoy the game because Neo Geo days. Hoping to try something new went it comes to fighting games. I am open for new things and ideas on fighting games. Maybe a indie developer might create a slow pace fighting game in the future. Like it or not, Samurai Shodown 2019 is apart of Esports now. There are tournaments for Samurai Shodown, check on YouTube for those. Samurai Samurai too slow is not excuse for not trying the game. Try playing the past games and see why Samurai Shodown is slow
. People have their opinion and have to deal with them. It wouldn’t hurt to try the game and give it a chance. Slow or not, Samurai Shodwn is here to stay among fighting games. The new one might have different gameplay mechanics. Samurai Shodown 2019 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia.
