Hey fighting game fans, here’s some cool news. SNK’s classic ’90s fighter Samurai Shodown 2 is making its way to iOS and Android, and best of all it’s coming this month. The original Samurai Shodown first popped up during the mid-90s when fighting game fever was in full effect, and was especially noteworthy for bringing weapons into the fighting game fold. This second entry in the series is regarded as a fan-favorite out of the many iterations that have been released since. Check out the trailer here.
As you can see towards the end, Samurai Shodown 2 will support the MOGA Bluetooth controller for Android devices, and given Apple’s recent hint towards official 3rd-party controller support, that may be in the cards for iOS gamers down the line too. No online is kind of a bummer, but at the very least I’ll be stoked to carry around one of my favorite fighters in my pocket, so add Samurai Shodown 2 to your TouchArcade (Free) app Watch List to get an alert when it hits the App Store sometime this month, and check out our forums for some discussion.
