I really hope to god that this game gets a Western release... after the mess that Sen was, it would be great to see Samurai Shodown make it's triumphant return.

It's great to see classic characters as well. I saw at least 5 (Haohmaru, Jubei, Nakoruru, Earthquake and Galford) and if this is a reboot of the series, then most of the classic cast should return.

11 characters ? That sounds rather short unless it's really a reboot of the first game. I just want Kazuki but that's not looking too good for him.

I can't believe SNK is making another Samurai Shodown! It's been 10 long years since "6"!
I'm so happy!

YEEEEEESSSSS!!!

Finally, my favourite series might be able to regain some respect after Sen. Does look like a reboot of the first game, but I'm eager to see more... so glad of Galford's looks, but oddly... I'm really looking forward to seeing Charlotte or Gen-An. :)

It looks a lot like Street Fighter 4 graphically.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Person Man on September 10, 2018, 06:09:56 pm
^ There’s a part in the trailer where Nakoruru stabs someone and gets covered in blood spatter, so there’s definitely some level of gore happening here.

Getting some Street Fighter IV vibes from the art style.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Byakko on September 10, 2018, 07:18:13 pm
Well most big cuts have a giant blood spatter (almost as big as the characters) coming with it so yeah, there's blood, but do people get actually cut in half and such ? That'll be the question.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Magma MK-II on September 10, 2018, 08:49:50 pm
I don't think thay want to get a PG-18 rating.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: GalFord on September 10, 2018, 09:49:07 pm
I think the sumi-e/Street Fighter 4 style really suits Samurai Spirits, I'm really hoping that the soundtrack is similar to the originals too, I loved SS4's OST.

EDIT: (Just realised, the picture that states the characters is wrong... it's not Genjuro in the bottom left corner, but Wan-Fu. Genjuro has his giant ponytail, whereas Wan-Fu was almost bald.  So, the base cast is the entire SS1 line up at least!)

It takes place in 1787, a year after the events of SS5 and before the events of SS1. It is also blatantly referenced at the beginning of the trailer.

Also, despite not most likely playable (unless DLC), Gaoh (SS5 Boss) makes a cameo at the beginning.

Eventhubs has a much better screenshot
https://www.eventhubs.com/imagegallery/2018/sep/10/samurai-spirits-trailer-characters/1/
Obviously Genjuro (also obviously Tam Tam on the top left despite Eventhubs thinking it might be Wan Fu).

Ah so it is, thanks for showing me the better image Byakko. It's a lot clearer!  I do hope they add more of the cast, it would be good to see Kazuki or Sougetsu again. Does seem a little odd that Gen-An wasn't in that first line up, but hey...

Oh man, i'm so happy! SamSho will back!! :D :D

Well, as it seems, will be the second prequel of the series since will be the direct sequel of SamSho V / Samurai Spirits Zero.
I hope this could be great, SamSho deserves a glorious comeback.

What do we know from the trailer:

* The game will be set in 1787, one year after SS5 and one year before the original game.
* Haohmaru, Jubei, Nakoruru, Earthquake and Galford are confirmed.
* That picture on the trailer shows almost the entire cast from the original game plus Genjuro, with the only missing characters being Gen-An, Wan-Fu and Amakusa.
* We'll have blood. Tons of blood.
* Those grayscale on red background cut-ins will probably be fatalities/finalizations.

My predictions:

* We'll be getting the entire cast from the original game.
* Either we'll be getting a new boss, or it'll be Amakusa again.
* Since Genjuro will definitely be in as well we'll probably be getting some of the newcomers from II, III and IV as well (they're pretty much fan favorites so there's no reason to not include them).
* I doubt we'll be getting any of the newcomers from Samurai Shodown V, though since the story seems to involve him directly Yoshitora may be coming back, but that's it.
* Also doubt any of the Tenkaichi newcomer's we'll be coming back, since this game wasn't canon.
* Maybe we could get some of the characters from the 64 games, though I highly doubt it.

* Surely they'll be in. But specially i want to see Amakusa!
* These are my predictions about the characters (except Genjuro since he's already confirmed) > Amakusa, Genan, Wan-Fu, Sieger, Cham Cham, Gaira Caffeine, Rimururu, Basara, Kazuki, Sogetsu, Yoshitora and MAYBE Iroha instead she's from SamSho VI which is non-canon but Iroha is a fan favorite. I hope that Shiki will be in too, she's such a badass and a fan favorite aswell.

Don't think that Nicotine Caffeine and Rasetsumaru will be in. Yunfei, Yumeji and Mina are canonically dead so they won't be in for sure. And just forget Kusaregedo. :P
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Byakko on September 13, 2018, 01:29:26 am
Shiki is a fan favorite but it always feels weird and disconnected when they just dump her in a game without going over the whole Asura storyline (i.e. almost all the games she ever showed up in), so I dunno, I feel she deserves to be kept off for a fleshed out sequel where she's actually part of the story.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: crimson_snow on September 13, 2018, 10:18:25 am
Although Sen is universally reviled. I think one character might possibly make it. It may be Kim Hae Ryeong. Thanks to Kim Kaphwan (and to some extent, Kim Sue-il), he'll easily translate into 2D-style gameplay.

BTW, Yumeji is still alive (as a monk or something), based from Rasetsumaru's Ending.

Since the leaker got some things right, I think we'll get Shiki along the way (whether part of the initial roster or DLC, it remains to be seen).

Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: 地獄の花 on September 13, 2018, 11:52:40 am
that's actually a great idea. but that's a full hundred years.  but seeing nakoruru is in kof14 why not.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Alpaca-San on September 13, 2018, 09:23:29 pm
* We're likely getting the original cast save for Amakusa who has not been resurrected yet and Gen-An who is kinda a maybe because of his lack of popularity in japan.

* Genjuro, as usual, is the only character from 2 that's getting in the base game. Though Cham Cham is a very likely DLC candidate.

* Rimururu, Sogetsu, and Kazuki are safe bets as they're series staples. Shizumaru is a possiblity. It would be great now that the technology they have isn't as limited as it was back when they had to cut Shizumaru from 64 because his Umbrella was tricky for them to render.

* It is with a heavy heart I must say that my man Basara is not getting in. There doesn't seem to be a plot reason to include him and he's not exactly a very popular character in the series. My hopes are not even remotely up for him...

* I strongly doubt we're going to see anyone from 5, save maybe Rera as an alt costume or DLC. They're all either busy with more peaceful professions, dead, imprisoned, or in Rasetsumaru's case: is a severed head.

* Nobody introduced in 6 is likely to make it because the game is not canon.

* Nobody from 64 is making it in because Shiki is the only one anybody remembers and she would likely be too young to fight in this game's timeline. Nobody from Sen is going to be in either because Suzu is the only character the fans didn't hate and if she was in this game, she would be like, 4 years old or something. Those two could be DLC though, where it doesn't have to make sense. Just ask Rock.

So my prediction for the line-up is Haohmaru, Genjuro, Ukyo, Charlotte, Tam Tam, Wan Fu, Earthquake, Hanzo, Galford, Nakoruru, Rimururu, Jubei, Gen-An?, Gaira?, Kyoshiro, Kazuki, and Sogetsu. The rest of the cast is new characters.


Also, from gameplay observations I can see that Issens will be back meaning we're getting rage explosion and possibly concentration 1. Also, that stab move Nakoruru does hints to either the return of Zetsumei Ougis or the introduction of max supers. Characters get drenched in blood as the fight goes on so I don't doubt there's going to be death animations at the end of a fight regardless. The heavy hitstops on fierce slashes are back, now with instant replays (assuming that wasn't cool editing) which hints towards the return of classic Samurai Shodown gameplay.

Canon or not canon, Iroha will most likely make it in considering how popular that character is. Pretty sure SNK can find a way to fit her into the timeline.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced

She not being canon makes it easier to fit her in, actually.

Uh ? Iroha is not canon ? How is that ?
She's from... VI, right ? I never followed the Samsho timeline but Eventhubs says that's in 1799, with this game happening in 1787, that's... Well who cares she's a crane spirit right ? I don't remember her story particularly limiting the time frame in which she could possibly appear, it shouldn't be a problem to have her just be around already.

truth to be told a lto fo people are saying taht samsho tenka/iroha are not canon and I did not bother to check if it was true. As you said, she being a crane , the timeline does not matter.

6 is a dream match game with no actual bearing on the story, so as it stands she is currently non-canon along with Magaoh, Andrew, Ochamaru, and Suguroko. Granted this game can change that.

To recap, Tenkaichi only has a small excuse that Yoshitora and Andrew are hosting a festival to sign good relations between their countries. Iroha, Sugoroku and Ochamaru are basically staff of this festival, not having much story beyond that. Demon Gaoh on the other hand is just a space flea. As said before, the game is a dream match with the entire roster of the previous five games, influding the canonically dead characters.

What's with the Kusaregedo hate? Did you all get rolled over by good 'Gedo players when SSVSP came out on PSN :3c? He's a much better character than Iroha anyways.

I will admit he has like, zero chances to be in this game sadly.

They are all good choices and if they put Last Blade Characters into the Game as non-canon DLC, then they probably add Kaede.

Really? Is that because of the command throw shenanigans or is your favoritism for Kusaregedo showing up again?

It's not my tier list, I'm citing japanese tier lists. It's the Sharkbutt into 'Gedo slam,  his stupid good normals, he can control how you can even approach him with his vomit, and his range more than offsets his total lack of mobility with the fact that you are in danger absolutely everywhere.

In Tenka though, he's nerfed and just total juggle bait.

More than likely not, given that Sen killed the franchise and this game is trying to revive it. It is true that Suzu is the one thing fans remember about the game but she would be like, 4 years old in this timeline.

...Wait I mean what the heck is Samurai Shodown Sen. That game never happened.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: 地獄の花 on September 18, 2018, 09:06:30 pm
who cares about the timeline as long as fans are pleased.

sen was a good game , the problem why it didn't do so good in sales is it's an xbox exclusive game. if it was on ps we might've seen a different outcome.

i did like the gore in that game it was limited to 3 or 4 death scenes and no special ones for each character like the older ones but at least they have it.

i don't think sen killed the franchise imo it was 6

Had Samurai Shodown Sen actually existed, it would've flopped horribly not only because it was exclusive to a console that wasn't very popular in japan but also because the radical departure from its roots to be more like a flawed Namco fighter would cause a number of fans to feel like SNK landed a fierce slash in their backs.

Luckily, Samurai Shodown Sen never happened and it was 6 that the franchise died. Again. Though as a series swan song it wouldn't be a terrible one. Like, having all the characters with some new ones and the grooves gave fans a content packed game and the revamped combo mechanics interested some non fans.  A shame about the loss of blood and death animations due to modern japanese arcade game content policies but what'ya gonna do.

If it's getting an 18+ rating (which I believe is the Japanese equal to our 'M' rating), then I have reason to believe that the effects are going to be cutting off arms and legs for finishing moves. It's not like this series hasn't dabbled in that before.

Don't forget the damage output when you have a full super bar is always daft in SamSho. You had to make sure you didn't leave yourself wide open for a heavy slash or worse when the opponent had full meter.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: TiE on February 27, 2019, 03:04:43 pm
In samsho3 you wasted any opponent with 3-4 hard (C) slashes. When you countered this way, it worked even faster.
I always thought this being a "tribute" to the sword wielding in that game & made it rather tactical.

This new installment looks great & far more fluid than the combo system in samsho4.

-Ash- you clearly never played a Samurai Shodown game period.

Haohmaru's steel breaker slash always did that.
(https://i.imgur.com/bfMVmuV.png)

The series usually is not really about combos (Though links and hitconfirms still exist, contrary to what a number of mugen creators strangely seem to believe) as much as it about spacing, good neutral, making good reads, and landing devastating punishes.

From what it looks like in the trailer, not only do we have classic Samurai Shodown gameplay back, but notice Jubei and Haohmaru's DPs at the beginning. We're apparently getting rage enhanced special moves (A mechanic introduced in 4 and dropped beginning with 5) back.

Is that a normal to special cancel?
Yes. And those are a thing in the series. Again, contrary to what some MUGEN converters seemed to assume.

i think more samsho chars must be converted to CVS style or another modern style too.

sometimes the creators forget to use other chars for convertion and repeating the same chars at inumerous versions.

I thought it was just activate some rage mode or something, but even then, I couldn't pull it off.

Well, Warusaki3 made CvS versions of SamSho characters which actually appeared in CvS, as well as some original ones, the thing is: lots of creators try to "convert" characters and end up making crap versions of them.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Seadragon77 on February 28, 2019, 12:16:52 am
In IV, it was a special motion you did in the deciding round only if the final hit makes the opponent lean forward. Then you do down, down, up, forward, forward+C for the finisher (or it was known in this game, a 'No Contest' move)

In V Special, you had to go into rage mode, then do D, DB, B+CD for your finishing move.

Outside of those two games, finishing an opponent tends to be random.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Alpaca-San on February 28, 2019, 01:29:35 am

No.

Now on the actual topic of talking about Samurai Shodown and not someone's MUGEN wish list...

I am assuming Macaulyn97 is referring to Samurai Shodown 5 special's Zetsumei Ougis.

*You need to be on your match deciding round.
*Your opponent's life bar must be at the point where it's glowing blue.
* You must be in Rage Explosion (A+B+C) and you must execute the Zetsumei Ougi before the meter runs out.
* Enter QCB, C+D on someone that's either really distracted, slow to react, or really committed to a false move.

I must wonder if that mechanic will return in this entry given the game's rating and that clip of a blood drenched Nakoruru reluctantly stabbing someone off camera.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Byakko on February 28, 2019, 03:49:09 am
The blood splatters remaining on the attacking character's face during the match is already pretty brutal. Like battle damage but with your enemy's blood. It looks to me like they're going all in with that stuff, so anything's on the table IMO, as long as they're ready to model it for everyone. And since they're also going for that "classic" appeal, I'm expecting heads to pop and bodies to be sliced open.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced

Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Alpaca-San on February 28, 2019, 07:05:58 am
Nothing new so far. I feel like the roster is gonna pretty much be most of the original cast (Likely no Amakusa and probably no Gen-An though), Genjuro, maybe Rimururu, maybe the brothers Kazama, and new guys. My hopes are not high for anyone from 5 or 6. Also, my hopes are not high for my boy Basara ;_;
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Umezono on February 28, 2019, 07:09:28 am
I always forget about Rimururu, its like she's constantly living in Nakoruru's shadow.

A Basara rendered like the models in this game would be sick. Genjuro and the brothers are also likely choices. I'll honestly be happy with just my ride or dies Gen-An and Kyoshiro tho
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Alpaca-San on February 28, 2019, 07:28:43 am
Kyoshiro is a safe bet. He's a mainstay since the original game, absent only from 64, 64-2, and Warriors Rage (All of which being early 3D games when SNK was just learning that stuff so probably not wanting to render his hair at the time)

Post by: TiE on February 28, 2019, 08:38:44 am
IIRC, the rage-enhancement was there since samsho3.
I recall Kibagami to have a devastating uppercut move. Including a second swirl & a bat down with the girl's face in the fx for it.

Also I'm pretty sure the "no contest" finisher was even shown on screen & was the same for all chars in samsho4.

IMHO samsho4 was the first to break with the basic charm of the series.
Having the "no contest" move & a combo-launcher. But it allowed for extremely long ones, when additionally enraged.
Though the damage dampening on them still had the normal heavy slash being favourable on damage output against a careless opponent.

Most underrated move was the half-circle forward for parry throughout. Hope that one is still in this upcoming installment.
Using that even boosted the counter percentage..

Never got into 5 myself, so I can't tell for that one.

I also guess, the cast should have the stickies. So I hope they count in Hanzo & Galford as well & my favorite of samsho3 (felt kinda nerfed in 4) Tachibana Ukyo.

Always loved Basara myself, but always hated the move separation. Usually I played the bust setup, but loved the vanishing move & the special on normal way more. The former being rather pointless used against the CPU...
If they would bring TamTam back, that would be awesome as well.
Title: Re: New Samurai Spirits announced
Post by: Alpaca-San on February 28, 2019, 09:08:56 am
Samurai Shodown 3 didn't have rage enhanced specials. The enhanced Genjuro DP was in 4.

Also Deflects are back, as Haohmaru pulls one off on Galford in that trailer.

Jump-Ins are a fighting game thing in general, not just a capcom thing. SNK definately loves its jump-ins with KOF. Samurai Shodown is actually not an exception. Charlotte is known for doing some nasty jump-ins do to her cross-up friendly air heavy and her hefty yaccel. My Basara tactics often utilize the soul sphere and a wall jump cross-up jump heavy. Ideally, the jump heavy connects, then the Soul Sphere, and then I do another heavy which won't actually make the opponent fall because it doesn't count as doing 2 heavies in a row: meaning I have mix-ups. It's just you can't air block so you can't just attempt jump-ins whenever you want.

Ukyo keeps thinking he's going to die from his illness but he ends up not dying.

Nakoruru doesn't actually die so much as transcends humanity and becomes one with nature to heal it from the damage caused by Mizuki's attempt to merge earth with the demon realm. Basically, she becomes an avatar at the end of 2. She can regain her physical form during times of need such as the events of Samurai Shodown 64 and 64-2.

The timeline order goes
5
This upcoming one
1
3
4
2
64
64-2
Some terrible nightmare of a game that never actually happened.
Warriors Rage

5 Special and 6 are dream match games and not really part of the time line.

I don't think the antagonist is going to be a returning character. Charlotte's stage, being a callback to her stage in Samurai Shodown 2, has a big mural where the cast is gathered against what looks to be some kind of winged, angel-like figure. I am pretty anxious to see what the heck that will turn out to be.

I will say from watching all this gameplay footage again and again to get a feel for the system, I do have my worries about the loading times (Is this playstation Samurai Shodown 3 all over again?) and the launch Street Fighter 5 levels of content (Literally the same number of characters and stages slated to be available at launch). Other than that, the system itself appears solid. It looks like a good mixture of the first 2 games in terms of footsies emphasis and 4 in terms of overall system but without the stupid dial-combos and hopefully nowhere near as stupidly broken, and apparently the exceeds from SVC Chaos because why not.

The load times are likely because the game hasn't been optimized yet, KoF XIII had similar loading issues before its console launch.

Neo_G considers SSII to be his favorite, he's very much about the classics in game design. I hope they get the online right from the get-go this time with no bugs. And rollback netcode but that's a bit optimistic.

Based on her design ? "She went back to some other country / her home country / wandering the sea" sounds like an easy guess (I know, SamSho has a bunch of "foreigner" characters who stick around)

All the super moves so far :

(thumbnail is misleading, no Yoshitora or Hanzo) (I realize that there was a 44 minute long gameplay video earlier, I didn't watch much of that because fuck watching a 44 minute long video, so I'm not sure if all of that footage was already there)
You know, seeing so much blood splattered all over everyone's face, up close and moving around, is getting a little bit unsettling, that's good enough for that R rating despite the apparent lack of dismemberment action (I almost thought Shiki beheaded Yoshitora in that trailer sequence, but no).
BTW that music for the trailer is real nice.

edit - checking out Maximilian's video about it, he says you can chop people in half after all ? Dunno why they haven't advertised it yet since that's a fairly big thing in SamSho.

Yeah, when you finish a match with a heavy slash, your opponent's body gets cut up but without the cinematic finish. I think only cinematic supers got that special finish anyway now that I think about it. I love the new character's design, I just hope people can warm up to the idea of new characters in the timeline.

Post by: Byakko on March 31, 2019, 12:19:31 am
Really ? I'm checking out some more gameplay vids and I'm not seeing anything like that, and I'm seeing a bunch of heavy finishing hits. Is it something that can be turned off and they're just not showing it right now for some reason ? Is there any video that actually shows it ?

(I don't like this new version of Nakoruru's theme)

edit - oh, yeah, I see it. https://youtu.be/TpYMgRVvsBQ?t=1115 it's a lot more subtle than I expected. Wouldn't notice if I wasn't looking for it...

Ah, thanks. Yeah, that's a bit tame and anticlimactic.

SSV was a prequel to every other game in the series and that game had many new characters.

This game is set between that and the first game.

Maybe not. According to this thread by Art-Eater, he suggests Darli may have ties to French Polynesia (https://twitter.com/Richmond_Lee/status/1112199716807163909). I'll quote from the thread he started on March 30:

Art Eater said:
Darli Dagger's style of dress and weapon strongly recall Polynesian cultures, who have their own very cool warrior cultures which were actually sometimes inclusive of women!

Darli Dagger's weapon is obviously NOT a dagger. In fact I'd wager it was inspired by real life Polynesian cultures which often made use of shark teeth in their weaponry!

A Chinese one I must say. Judging for the silhouette, clearly the other girl must be from China, since I saw a qipao dress and the imperial haircut on her (as I saw them in Chinese historical drama series), seems like she could be a dancer or something. I can't wait for tomorrow to see all the new characters :D (the male one is another samurai/ronin I guess)

Also, I miss Gen-an :( I hope SNK can get him back as DLC at least

if this new samurai was converted for mugen, it was missing only the three new chars, but the other characters could be converted to a fullgame of this title in 2d.

this game in 2d will look awesome, maybe we could see it soon.

ESRB rating is up! As obvious it's rated M
Quote
"This is a one-on-one fighting game in which players engage in matches featuring characters and settings from feudal Japan. Players use swords, daggers, spears, and hooks to attack opponents and drain their health meters. Fights are highlighted by cries of pain, slashing/impact sounds, and large blood-splatter effects. Each character can perform dramatic special moves, shown in brief cutscenes; some special moves involve repeated slashing of opponents; stabbing/impaling; tossing of bombs. Special-move sequences sometimes depict slow-motion effects and close-up camera angles; several moves result in large blood-splatter effects and occasional dismemberment (torsos). One female character is depicted partially nude—her breasts and groin covered by arms or wisps of hair."

I thought the roster was already fully revealed, no? If there are still some characters missing, then maybe a woman covered only by arms or hair isn't referring to a playable character. Basara, one of the playable characters in many games, had his dead wife, Kagaribi, appear in intros and winposes, sometimes using a robe that didn't cover much, but other times, completely nude, with her hair and arms covering her:
(https://i.imgur.com/2IanaVP.jpg)

This could mean that either Basara will be playable or he and his wife will appear as a cameo. I must say, if she appears nude, it really bothers me even more that they put shorts in Tam Tam, seriously, one character will appear fully naked and Tam Tam must swap his underwear for shorts? Fuck you, SNK.

But c'mon MK9 is beautiful.

I'd also like Basara returning & agree on that being the most relevant sprites for that explanation...
Funny that they don't just cast shadows about Tam Tam's joystick, like before.
One should expect a little loosening the restrictions now... Though, IIRC you actually never saw his ding-dong...

I mean even Germany allowed the legal distribution of MK X as the first of that franchise in this country & now they complain about nudity?

they just suck to me , animation wise they are completely a mess , from their weird stance and wobbly upper body and still lower body. and don't get me started with their normal attacks, mk11 still has these problems but at least their character design isn't so bland anymore. and they gave liu kang a proper non generic stance. and mkx's switch stance is pointless. same goes for the injustice series.
