SNK has announced that Samurai Shodown will be making its PC debut on the Epic Games Store on June 11.

Pre-orders for the game are now open, and those who pre-order the latest entry in SNK’s long-running weapons-based fighter series before 11 AM on the day of the game’s release will receive a 10% discount on the game and all of its DLC characters.

“As some of you know, Samurai Shodown is making its way to the Epic Games Store,” the game’s producer Nobuyuki Kuroki said in a brief video statement in celebration of the game’s upcoming release on PC. “We are also planning to hold a special pre-order campaign for this occasion. We hope you’ll stay at home and enjoy some Samurai Shodown when it releases.”

Originally released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last June before finding its way to the Switch in February of this year, Samurai Shodown is a prequel to the iconic 1993 Neo Geo title. Set in Japan in the 1700s, the game features 13 returning characters and 3 all-new warriors to take control of, including the daring pirate Darli Dagger.

We scored the game a 4.5 out of 5 in our review saying, “Samurai Shodown is a triumphant return to form for SNK’s flagship weapons-based fighter series that demands your attention.”
