FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Samurai Shodown Sen Screenshots



Developed by SNK PLAYMORE, SAMURAI SHODOWN SEN is a weapons-based 3D fighting game that was originally released in Japanese arcades as SAMURAI SPIRITS SEN. It takes place in Japan during the twilight of the turbulent Edo period, and promises to be the most brutal and visceral installment in the SAMURAI SHODOWN series' history.

SAMURAI SHODOWN SEN follows a young European girl named Suzu, rescued off Japan's coast, adopted by the Amori Clan and raised as Princess Suzu. A decade later she saves Takechiyo, a self-proclaimed master of martial arts, after his ship sinks and he ends up washed on the beach; soon after this chance meeting, the tables turn when Princess Suzu mysteriously disappears and Takechiyo pledges to find his missing rescuer.

There are over 20 fighters to choose from, new and old. Alongside Princess Suzu and Takechiyo, a plethora of old favourites from the series have been faithfully incorporated, including Haohmaru, Galford, Hanzo Hattori, Nakoruru and Ukyo Tachibana. Players can become any one of these fighters and battle against friends via Xbox LIVE to see who can reach the top of a worldwide online ranking system.

The SAMURAI SHODOWN series made its debut on the NEOGEO over 16 years ago, notching up over 10 installments across a variety of formats, reinforcing the longevity and durability of the franchise. SAMURAI SHODOWN SEN marries the tradition of the series to the high definition of the Xbox 360, introducing new characters and fighting skills, while remaining loyal to existing favorites.
