The new installment of Samurai Shodown is now available on consoles. SNK announced that the title would also come to PC, but after almost 1 years since its original release, not much more was known about one of the platforms it would come to on PC would be the Epic Games Store. Today, SNK revealed that the title will soon make its debut on PC and only through the Epic Games Store, just as anticipated.
The developer shared a video announcing the arrival of Samurai Shodown (2019) on PC through the Epic Games platform. Said version of the game will be released in 2 weeks, on June 11, almost 1 year after the launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will be sold in exchange for $ 49.99 USD, according to information from Gematsu, however, at At the time of writing the note on the official title page in the Epic Games Store, it appears that it can already be preordered in exchange for $ 23.99 USD, but it has a 10% discount, which lowers its price to $ 21.59 USD. The offer will end June 11.
The entire DLC will be available in the store on opening day
Along with the base game, all DLC characters will be sold, as well as the Season Pass 1 (which includes Rimururu, Basara, Kazuki Kazuma and Wan-Fu) and the Season Pass 2 (which includes Mina Majikina, Sogetsu Kazama, Iroha and a fourth character not yet revealed). Each will be priced at $ 19.99 USD; characters will be priced individually at $ 5.99 USD.
In case you missed it: SNK was embroiled in controversy after sharing sexist comments to refer to Iroha, a Samurai Shodown fighter.
We leave you with the announcement trailer.

Will Samurai Shodown come to Steam?
It is important to say that in the video and in the official statement (via Gematsu) it only refers to the PC version for the Epic Games Store, so it is not known if the game will debut at the same time on Steam. The latter is very unlikely, because at the time of publishing the note the title does not yet have a page on Steam.
A year ago, it was revealed that SNK smashed a deal with the Epic Games Store, which would secure the fighting game’s debut on the Epic Games Store sooner than on Steam and consoles. However, it seems that the Japanese company did not affect the launch on consoles, but it did accept an exclusivity on PC. In case of an exclusivity agreement with the Epic Games Store, it is very likely that it will be one of months (or even 1 year), so the title could reach PC almost 2 years after its original release. We will keep you informed.
Samurai Shodown (2019) is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. In less than 1 month it will reach PC (via Epic Games Store). You can read more news related to him if you visit his file.
