We can now ignore the vague release window for the Switch version of Samurai Shodown, as we now have a solid date to look at for the game. If you were tired of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game or were holding out to be able to take it on the go with yourself, SNK has laid down the release date for Samurai Shodown on the Switch for February 25th of this year. Firmly in the middle of that Q1 2020 timeline we were all given not too long ago. It is just nice to have now for those looking to expand a library.
This version of Samurai Shodown will feature two-player 1v1 action we would expect and stay on par with the other versions by keeping its 60 FPS rate. If you were still on the fence for this version of the game, you can still score the pre-order bonus of a Switch version of Samurai Shodown! 2. That would be the 1999 version of the franchise and not some future version of this new version of the franchise. Do not get too excited for that just yet. Sorry to burst any bubbles you may have had there.
