Samurai Shodown Rollback Netcode Arriving Spring 2023

During EVO 2022, SNK announced that their fighting title, Samurai Shodown, will be receiving rollback netcode in Spring 2023.

This title was initially released in 2019, so an update of this caliber releasing roughly 3 years later is certainly unexpected. Regardless, rollback is always appreciated. We’ll keep you updated regarding this implementation as more information is shared.

Samurai Shodown

Samurai Shodown is a reboot of the 2D fighting game series by presenting it with a new 3D graphical look. However, the developer has worked hard to retain the classic fantasy Samurai manga look of the series. Samurai Shodown is set in the late 18th century after the events of Samurai Showdown V and prior to the events of the original game. Each of the fighters has a personal mission which leads them to encounter many of their former foes.
