Samurai Shodown quickly found a strong and dedicated following within the fighting game community, and we'll soon be able to play it on the go in the 60 fps action expected and need.

SNK announced today the Nintendo Switch version of Samurai Shodown will release in its home territory on December 12, 2019 and come with a nice bonus game for early adopters.

Players who pre-order or purchase SamSho on Switch shortly after release will also receive a digital Switch copy of Samurai Shodown! 2 which was originally released on the NeoGeo Pocket Color.

The company confirmed the port will also run at 60 frames per second and support single Joy-Con play to use in local multiplayer.

No western release date has been confirmed as of yet, but since the game came to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One a few days before Japan over here, we'll likely see it hit our shelves around the same time too.

SamSho's PC release is still currently slated for a fourth quarter release window this year.

The previously announced Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection was also given a Winter 2019 release window in Japan for PS4, Xbox, Switch and PC which comes with all five of the original numbered titles plus 5 Special all with online play and other goodies.

No update was given for the western release schedule, as this NeoGeo collection was originally announced to be coming sometime in the Fall here.
