Samurai Shodown Heads to PC June 11 via Epic Games Store

Samurai Shodown

SNK Corporation have announced the release date for Samurai Shodown on Windows PC via the Epic Games Store.

Along with the season passes for DLC characters also being implemented on the Epic Games Store, the game will also be 10% off via pre-purchasing until the game’s launch.

It is likely that the game will remain exclusive to the Epic Games Store for some time. Epic Games Store exclusivity has had received extremely bad press (especially when cancelling planned Steam releases). Some have rejected the store’s exclusivity offer, including Bandai NamcoMicrosoft, and indie developer Unfold Games.

You can find the Epic Game Store release date trailer below.
