Samurai Shodown releases for the Switch in Feb. 2020, PC version still in limbo

If you’ve been craving some Samurai Shodown action on the go, you won’t have to wait much longer as SNK has announced the Switch’s release date. Mark your calendars for February 25th,2020, as that’s when the game will be available on the Switch.

As an added bonus, if you pre-order the game, you’ll also receive Neo Geo Pocket port of Samurai Shodown 2. Which also happens to be the first time the game has even been ported. Currently, the game is priced at $44.99, a reduced price until the game is officially released.


While SNK’s reboot of the Samurai Shodown has already graced the PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and soon on the Switch. The PC version, sadly, still hasn’t been given a release date. We had contacted SNK in the past regarding any upcoming information, but nothing has come of that. Here’s to hoping that the PC version doesn’t end up being canceled. Either way, we’ll continue to update you on the status of the game.

Samurai Shodown is currently available for the PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.
