Those that have been waiting for another iteration of the Samurai Shodown series in 3D (because this is not the first) will enjoy this one. Samurai Shodown: Edge of Destiny, the latest SNK classic 2d series looks to reinvent itself with some next gen flare.
This time around it will add gameplay to match its 3D visuals in the form of fresh new controls. Controls schemes have added buttons for horizontal and vertical slashes, along with a kick and throw button. Blocking will happen automatically when not performing an action.
Thirteen new fighters will join the remaining eleven in this new bout, so fans will get to play with favorites like Nakoruru and Haohmaru. This game will try to mix elements everywhere from Bushido Blade, Guilty Gear, Soul Calibur and Street Fighter 4.
Hopefully SNK will learn from Samurai Shodown 64 mistakes on the Hyper Neo Geo 64 system. Look for Samurai Shodown: Edge of Destiny when it makes its US debut on the Xbox 360 exclusive from Ignition this November 2009.
