The Tokyo Game Show 2018-announced Samurai Shodown will launch in Q2 2019 (between April and June), SNK announced during an investor relations press conference today.
A slide shown during the event has raised questions as to whether Samurai Shodown will be released on other platforms in addition to PlayStation 4, but said slide appears to indicate the representation of SNK’s key series across platforms—not the platforms of the new Samurai Shodown specifically. For example, The King of Fighters XIV is pictured for the King of Fighters series, but while The King of Fighters XIV is available on PlayStation 4 and PC, it is not available on Switch and Xbox One, which are also listed. However, the series itself is available across all listed platforms. The same can be said for the Samurai Shodown (Samurai Spirits) and Metal Slug series, both of which have games available on all listed platforms.
Further information was not announced.
