Nintendo Switch Trailer
Samurai Shodown has been delighting fighting game fans since this summer, but it is nice to see it making its way over to Nintendo Switch. We were eager to check out the game back in June, but it slipped through the cracks.
Luckily this gives a perfect opportunity for those that may have missed out to check out the game early next year. Plus, it’ll give you the ability to play it on-the-go, which is always a bonus.
