However, during a previous announcement made for the game’s press release, it was pointed out that Samurai Spirits Zero Special (the sixth title in the series) was not included in the games listed in the compilation. Fortunately, website Siliconera was able to contact SNK Playmore USA to clarify this matter. The company responded saying that even if Japan does not get Samurai Spirits Zero, Samurai Shodown Anthology “will have V Special and VI for the first time in the US”.

This makes a total of seven games included in Samurai Shodown Anthology – all six games in the regular series plus the Samurai Shodown V Special. It’s all good for anyone looking for fast and furious sword slashing action. There’s been no specific date when this title will be released, but rest assured we’ll be there to cover it once we get word.
