Rising Star Games are proud to be bringing the Legendary sword fighting franchise to the PAL region.
Coming to the Xbox360 this spring, Samurai Shodown Sen is actually the 11th game in the series by SNK, and the fourth to feature 3D sword fighting mayhem. The game takes place in Japan during the twilight of the turbulent Edo period, and promises to be the most brutal and visceral chapter in the Samurai Shodown series’ history.
Originally released in Japanese arcades, Samurai Shodown Sen follows a young European girl named Suzu, rescued from a sinking ship off Japan’s coast, adopted by the Amori Clan and raised as Princess Suzu. A decade later she saves Takechiyo, a self-proclaimed master of martial arts, after his ship sinks and he ends up washed on the beach; soon after this chance meeting, the tables turn when Princess Suzu mysteriously disappears and Takechiyo pledges to find his missing rescuer.
Featuring more than 20 warriors with unique fighting styles, some new and some returning favorites from the previous games, and an exciting online multiplayer mode, Samurai Shodown Sen brings marries the tradition of the series to the high definition of the Xbox 360.
“The kudos the SNK series carries sits comfortably within our portfolio and fans of the sword-fighting series won’t be disappointed; the 3D graphics simply must be seen,” says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games.
