Samurai Shodown: Oborozuki Densetsu

SNK has announced Samurai Shodown: Oborozuki Densetsu, a new Japanese-style action game for smartphones developed by Ledo and distributed exclusively by Tencent. A release date was not announced, but an open test will be held in China in May.

Samurai Shodown: Oborozuki Densetsu lets players choose from among classes such as swordsman, ninja, and maiden, and fight against an evil force alongside familiar characters like Haohmaru, Ukyo Tachibana, and Nakoruru.

The game employs various new experiments, including an innovative control scheme, communication-deepening guild system, and stress-free quest feature. Additionally, characters are voiced by popular Japanese voice actors such as Saori Hayami, Ayane Sakura, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Jun Fukuyama.
