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 Namco, Microsoft, and indie developer Unfold Games.
