Samurai Shodown Gets PS4 and Xbox One Release Date, Dojo Mode Unveiled



Samurai Shodown

In a new trailer, SNK reveals several important details about the upcoming release of its reboot of the 1993 classic Samurai Shodown.

The ‘Return of a Legend’ trailer offers a quick history lesson on the roots of the series before getting right into gameplay. Possibly the biggest revelation in this video is Dojo Mode, a much-emulated system other fighting games struggle to pull off.

While playing Samurai Shodown, the game will automatically create an AI “ghost” that learns the exact playstyle of players. In Dojo Mode, players can go up against their own ghost or download ghosts from other players. The ghost system opens up the possibility of simulating matches against offline friends or even professionals from the fighting game scene.

Towards the end of the video, the trailer revealed that the release date for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Samurai Shodown will be June 25. Purchasing the game before June 30 will also give players access to Samurai Shodown‘s season pass, which covers six months of DLC content. Over those six months, at least four new characters will be introduced.

An exact release date for the Nintendo Switch or PC is not discussed in this trailer, although SNK has previously announced that Samurai Shodown will launch on the Switch in Q4 2019 and PC “at a later date.”

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.
