General Gaming Samurai Shodown - Information Thread, update: OpenCritic review compilation

Recommended Posts

Nice.

I'm glad it's trying to retain some of the cartoony look but really you can only see it when it gets close up.

Put way more time into the first two than any Street Fighter game in the arcades.

 

So did I... I was pretty damn good in the NY/NJ arcades of the 90's at these games too :p

I wonder how many characters they will pull from the different installments or if this is just a pure SS1 remake? It's perfect with the SF4 style graphics. I also love the blood splatter on the characters after delivering a blow. Excited for this! :)

Here's a list of details of the different types of releases and info on the first Season pack. Also some HQ shots of the stages and characters in there. :)

 

And here's the latest full trailer showing off 3 of the new characters. Looks great! No mention of a combo system yet so I'm curious about that.

 

 

The art style is PERFECT for this game! The music and stages are beautiful! So excited! <3

Maybe my memory is poor but it looks like Genjuro has been hitting the roids hard?

 

Genjuro was always bricked out. I'm assuming more fighters will be added as time goes on? There's some notable omissions in there.

From what we understand, the launch of the game will feature 16 characters (13 returning, 3 new) and then others being available later via DLC. 

 

No word on WHO those DLC characters are yet.

Cool... I mean all three of my mains are already in but there's a couple of guys I used to like fighting :p Wan-Fu, Gen-an and those two fire and Ice guys from Sam Sho four. I mained Haohmaru, Nakoruru and Ukyo.

Characters who I hope to see in future DLC to round off the cast:
 

-Gen-An

-Sieger

-Wan-Fu

-Cham Cham

-Nicotine Caffeine

-Sogetsu & Kazuki (I feel like they're a package deal)

 

:pray:

Definite buy for me as well. Absolutely loved this series back in the day. I may also be one of dozens who thinks SS3 is great.

I have missed out on this series 3D outings but this looks like a good one to jump in.

Cool video showcasing Nakoruru. I'm digging the blood splatter after what seems like a super move. From what I saw in another video the combat is meant to be slower with a mistake potentially costing you a ton of health. Modeling it after a real Samurai fight. I'm digging it. We have enough fast-paced 20+ combo games out there. I'm curious about their take.

As I think of characters I hope are added I just keep going back to wanting the full cast of SSII included.. Wan-Fu with his pillar and stormy stage

What system are you guys getting this on? I wouldn't mind having some online sparring partners.

I'll get it on the PS4. Thinking of doing a pre-order for the season pass bonus.
