Next to Capcom’s Street Fighter, SNK is one of the pioneers of the genre, especially during the 90s. SNK is not as mainstream as it use to be in the 90s. But in Latin American markets, they are still King of fighters. (Pun intended) I am a fan of some of their works. They created Fatal Fury,King of fighters, Metal slug and Samurai shodown. When Playmore purchased SNK, the company experienced a decline. SNK Playmore stopped making games and use the images of SNK characters to make Pachinko machines. Thankfully, SNK escaped that limbo and they revived the King of Fighters Franchise. Last year they made a revival for their IP Samurai Shodown and the game is still getting some DLC.
Samurai Shodown, SNK’s celebrated fighting franchise, was reborn last year with a self-titled new edition on consoles. PC gamers have been demanding it ever since, and today their wishes were granted (except for the ones who wanted it on Steam).
SNK CORPORATION CORPORATION (Corporate HQ: Suita-city, Osaka, Japan, Company President & CEO: Koichi Toyama) is pleased to announce that the first character for the second season of “SAMURAI SHODOWN” is MINA MAJIKINA and that she will be available to download on February 26th for the PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Nintendo SwitchTM consoles.

Another lineup of fighters is coming to Samurai Shodown! Four additional characters are on the way, and SNK revealed three of them today. Samurai Shodown is the current-gen revival of a long-running series that had its birth in the arcades, back in 1993.
