You have to buy the season pass separately, but it's on the cheaper side.  I grabbed the "deluxe" version with the DLC characters since it is (was?) discounted pre-release.

You also get Samurai Shodown! 2 for the Neo-Geo Pocket as a bonus, lol.  Pretty good emulation.  You can even select the color of the NeoGeo Pocket Color border.  :lol

Speaking of DLC, the characters weren't showing up- just checked and it downloaded a big update file.  Wonder if it did anything besides add them in? :thinking

Played some more of SS Switch last night and experienced some framerate drops here and there- it didn't affect the game play, but it is noticeable when it happens. Played online once and the other player was likely in Japan, so it wasn't the greatest connection quality. Even if online ends up not being the best in this version, I'm satisfied with this port since I plan to primarily play it as a handheld game and ghost battle/survival is fun. 

Can't judge online based on that one match anyway.  FWIW SNK Heroines was good online...it just had a shitty 30 FPS framerate, lol.

Yeah I wouldn't consider a switch port primary rev for something like this, would be CPU/dojo fights onry (not like I go online a lot anyway).

Is the loading any faster than PS4 rev?

Here's a framerate test.  So it looks like it occasionally dips to 50-55-ish FPS on average.  Not too bad and again didn't affect anything from what I've played.

Pretty much the same loading times.

Iroha plays well but is the shittiest character/design in samsho history. MASTER LETS GO FOR A WALK.

All are good additions gameplay wise I think, although I expected a soul cali crossover? I want Voldo.  :lol

Iroha has got to be the most "fan-service" character that they've ever created- a scantily-clad crane maid who breaks the fourth wall and talks to you, the player.   :lol  She's pretty dated in the sense that the character came along when maid cafes got huge in Japan.  Pretty sure that fizzled way out years ago although I do remember seeing maids out on the street last time I was there, so what do I know.

All are good additions gameplay wise I think, although I expected a soul cali crossover? I want Voldo.  :lol

Maybe character #4 will be someone from Soul Calibur.  Stick with the trend and make it Taki:lol

I'm sticking with the view that they are not releasing this game on Steam until all the DLC characters are out.  They were still saying a PC port is coming last time I checked.

Mina is up on PSN- was waiting all morning and afternoon for the Switch version to update, so I could mess around in training during work downtime, but still nothing.

:stahp

Really need to get a controller paired with my phone for remote play.

I might start using her- she's got actual NORMALS now (explained by the bow having a blade on the end of it) as opposed to ARROW ARROW ARROW ARROW like in SS5 and SS6.  It's like she's a real character now!

Nah, you can grab Mina now and get the season pass discounted, to make up for their mistake, when it goes up.  :)

They fucked up and she is up on EU and some Asian region shops, lol.  Also makes it so that those players are now unable to play with other regions until the game is updated for everyone else next week.

how embarrassing.  :lol

I like her moveset though so we will see. was hoping they would have next reveal at end but nope. I want Gen-An, but I guess we might be due a soulcalibur crossover? Yoshimitsu or Cervantes would do best, Mitsurugi would be ok...but watch it be Ivy or something. thinking chances of an extra free character like they did with Shizumaru are pretty slim.

for some reason I didn't click with Sogetsu when I like him better in the 2D ones, but being honest I haven't played in a while...am sure I will cycle back eventually as love the game.

I didn't even realize the switch rev dropped in NA but they apparently dumped it on Feb 25! will have to see what the DLC situation is, I am not seeing any available at a glance. with this and the whole stadia vs. PC deal, stepping back SNK have kind of mismanaged the game past S1 IMO.

*edit* I just remembered they announced it for EGS.  :lol

It sucks that they did end up getting that EGS MONEY HAT.  I may get it on there (would be my first EGS game) if there's enough people playing.

I really like how this game has turned out.  Wish more people were into it.

Same, I really want it on PC but would way rather on steam with everything else. I am totally expecting it to backfire and go on sale immediately after (or given away).

Will probably be a drunk buy.  :doge

PC version will release on the EGS on 6/11.  Didn't see anything about a bundle, which means you'll have to buy the game and then fork over another $40 for both season passes.

6/11 is also when the Samurai Shodown Collection releases on the EGS...for free from 6/11-6/18 (at which point it comes out on Steam).  Not sure if this is just a trial thing or if it will be free to own if you get it during that time, but it just kind of feels like SS 2019 is being sent to die on EGS.

LRG did it for ADK Tamashii too.  These things look great and have some nice extras inside.  Pix N' Love's Samurai Shodown 2019 that recently released includes a physical copy of the NeoGeo Pocket Samurai Shodown! 2 in the box and is the only way to get a physical copy of that game.  Am wondering if they'll do something similar and bundle it with Gals Fighters or something.

spoiler (click to show/hide)
I ended up with three Samurai Shodowns because of all these different releases.  :dizzy

PS4, Switch, and the Pix N' Love Switch version:

[close]

This game's release and announcement makes me wonder what the point of Limited Run Games taking pre-orders for Samurai Shodown V Special in an AES-style shockbox was.  Seems pointless now with this release coming.

I don't know if this is normal, but it keeps auto-applying a $10 coupon to EVERYTHING.  I got SS for $40 and the two DLC packs for $7 each.  Picked up Tetris Effect on the cheap too before the sale ended.

No screen-tearing for me.  Load times are the same as PS4.  Maybe a second faster but I started counting right when I picked a stage in practice.

Went online and found zero games.  :lol  No ranked, no lobbies.  Dead on arrival?  Everyone is playing the collection, I imagine.
