Samurai Shodown Version 2.00 patch notes released

Gongsun Li wasn't the only thing to change about the game

Yesterday saw the addition of the newest Samurai Shodown DLC character hit the stage in Honor of Kings' Gongsun Li which was of course accompanied by a new title update.

SNK has now released the full patch notes for said Version 2.00 update which includes changes to many of the game's roster along with some decent-sounding buffs to certain characters.

In all, eight fighters received touch ups with this new patch including Ukyo, Jubei, Darli Dagger, Rimururu, Shizumaru, Sogetsu, Iroha and the last addition in Warden.

Most of the changes overall appear to be ironing out bug fixes like Iroha apparently turning completely black sometimes after her iconic Super Special Move along with making some moves more uniform.

Sogetsu sees the hitbox on his Moon Glow special increase with the new update too along with an improved 6 Swallow Flash for Ukyo which gives him new options for the Weapon Flipping Technique like landing it off of back throw.

There will be a Season 3 for Samurai Shodown at some point in the future as announced last week, but it seems the game will likely be using this version of the game until that time arises with no more immediate content on the horizon.

You can check out the full patch notes below.
