Samurai Shodown has grabbed the attention of many in the fighting game community with its first new game in the series in a decade, and it's currently available with a pretty sweet discount on the world's most popular online retailer.

Amazon is running a special coupon offer for Samurai Shodown that lowers the price even further than its $50 listing price on the site bringing it down nearly 40 percent off of its launch point — making it a potentially great deal for those keeping an eye on the title's progress.

Using an automatic coupon on Amazon will bring the total price of Samurai Shodown down an additional $12.45 to only $37.49 total which is probably going to be hard to beat until we hit Black Friday deals this November.

On top of that, SNK announced that SamSho's first DLC character in Rimururu will be playable at EVO 2019 before her scheduled release later in August.

The company will be using the opportunity to bring their in-development arcade cabinets to the venue for players to try for free with location test players online in Japan during the two day period of August 2 and 3 on the Taito cabs.

This Amazon deal is likely only available to customers in the United States on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One — with no end date / time listed for the coupon — so it'd probably be best to act fast before it goes back up in price. Our review for Samurai Shodown praises the title for its footsie-based gameplay and graphical style, so it might be worth picking up if you've been craving an older-styled fighting game on modern hardware.
