Game Description

A famine grips 18th century Japan. Chaos reigns as the starving population struggles to survive. A faction of traitors marauds through the ravaged land, looking to take advantage of the weakened people. In the midst of this darkness, one courageous General sounds a call for help. It's answered by 27 fearless souls (including nine new characters), who will fight to restore honor to the land. Take up your sword and follow the way of the warrior in this 2D arcade swordfighter. Conquer five modes of (sword)play: Story, Time Attack, Vs., Gallery, and Practice, built with an all-new fight system for one or two players.

Now I’m a Samurai Showdown fan but SS5 Sux. I played SS2-4 on the neo geo and was excited to relive some old school sword fighting but SS5 fell short. Remember the good old days and leave this one on the shelf.more
