SNK announced that Samurai Shodown will be available for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on March 16. The game is compatible with Smart Delivery, so players who already have it on Xbox One will have access to the next generation version.
Players will be able to bring all their DLC and progress from the Xbox One version to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S editions. This premiere will arrive simultaneously with the premiere of their Season Pass 3 and balance adjustments.
The game will be available in both digital and hard copy formats in North America. The physical game will include the content of Season Pass 1, so it will give access to Rimuru, Basara, Kazuki and Wan-Fu. As if that were not enough, it will also include Cham-Cham from the new season.
Samurai Shodown will run better than ever thanks to the power of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Hayato Konya, game director, revealed that the game will double its frame rate per second, going from 60 fps to 120 fps.
