If you're like me, you remember playing the arcade version of Samurai Shodown on Friday nights as you waited for your two slices of pizza and a coke to be ready at Uncle Larry's. Man did Uncle Larry make some good pizza (even if he wasn't really my uncle). It is always nice to see such a long-running series putting out a new entry.
The newest title in this franchise, which will have 24 different fighters, is Samurai Shodown Sen and it's due out on the Xbox 360 this spring. The story involves the society being on the brink of collapse due to Western influences, but does the story in a fighting game matter anywhere near as much as the visuals and the actual gameplay? We can't speak to the gameplay yet, but the visuals are something we can show you. Take a gander.
