A Quick Look Before Launch: Samurai Showdown V Special PS4
Samurai Showdown V Special will go live today but before that, let's take a quick look at some of the features of the SNK's final Magnum Opus for its Neo Geo system. The game will have a $14.99 price tag and will support both cross play and cross buy for the PS Vita. Samurai Showdown V Special like most Neo Geo games is known for its technical depth which requires a lot of skills to master. Aside from the new multiplayer feature of the game, SNK has also managed to squeeze in features like trophies, leaderboards, and music control options which allows the player to set his favorite track as the game's menu BGM. 
 
The team has also managed to include a couple of tips and strategies in the game's launch trailer. Samurai Showdown V Special doesn't have any respect for luck, mastering some of the basic elements combined with the application of real-time strategy are just some of the factors that will influence the outcome of each match. Examples of this include "Deflect" which if executed properly will put the player's opponent in a vulnerable position which will easily lead to his demise. Another example is the "Blade Catch" which can be executed after the player has been disarmed by his opponent using the weapon flipping technique.
 
For those hardcore players who want to experience one of the most skill-based fighting game by SNK, this game is a must have. Check out the gallery and the trailer below for more information and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
