Update: Samurai Shodown Version 1.11 update nerfs Genjuro plus buffs Shiki, Kyoshiro, Darli and many others for first big balance rework

Posted by Dakota 'DarkHorse' Hills • August 14, 2019 at 10:39 a.m. PDT

Update: We've added the full Samurai Shodown Version 1.11 patch notes which you can check out after the jump.

While Samurai Shodown added its first DLC character in Rimururu about a week ago, the prominent new SNK fighting game has now received its first major balance adjustment in the form of an update.

The Version 1.11 patch is now available to download for Samurai Shodown which features changes for the entire cast including some long-awaited nerfs and buffs plus near universal improvement for walk speeds as well as added online options.

People following the game are likely most keen to see how SNK has decided to handle Genjuro following his rocketing up the tier lists and tournament results. Many out there are probably happy to see him toned down though he also doesn't appear to be nerfed into oblivion either.

Genjuro's standing kick, Zen Blade and some other moves have been made slower on start up — plus they removed the overhead property from the kick — on top of increasing the recovery of a good number of his attacks and removing some invulnerabilities from the different strengths of Lightning Wings.

Other characters like Shiki, Kyoshiro and Darli Dagger received some nice upgrades in the form of damage increases, faster start ups, more cancel options, adjusted attack properties and some other new goodies for players — though surprisingly Charlotte was also mostly buffed as well.

Samurai Shodown's Version 1.11 update also adds some new features to the online suite including spectating options and the ability to return to previous modes after completing a ranked match. You can find the full patch notes in English from SNK here. We'll also be updating the story with the full patch notes below.
