#SamuraiShodown – Official Shiro Tokisada Amakusa DLC Character Trailer #samsho #snk #embracedeath #samuraispirits

Story

Prior to the events of Samurai Shodown, Amakusa is resurrected by the dark god Ambrosia; he uses the body of Shinzo Hattori (one of Hanzo’s sons). His main plot involves him stealing the Palenke stone, which he intended to use to bring Ambrosia to the mortal world. Haohmaru prevents this from happening by defeating him. In Galford’s ending in the same game, it is shown that Amakusa isn’t truly evil, thanking Galford for freeing him from Ambrosia’s clutches. Upon his resurrection in Samurai Shodown IV, his spirit splits into two halves: one good and one evil. Amakusa seeks to reunite with his more powerful and malevolently evil other half, who was bent on dominating Shimabara and eventually the whole world, but was unsuccessful as his evil counterpart was slain by Kazuki. His continued existence after his evil half is destroyed is mostly because of his host body Shinzo.

During the events in Samurai Shodown II, he saves certain characters from Mizuki’s wrath but because of the demise of his evil half, he isn’t as powerful as he once was and is defeated, leaving only Shinzo’s body for Hanzo to claim.

Personality

He’s a mad and vengeful spirit, resurrected by Ambrosia as a being of destruction to put up a new world order. Once he is relieved of the dark god’s possession, he reverts to his living persona as a kind and merciful soul of righteous constitution. He is a narcissist by nature, which is what originally lured him to Ambrosia’s temptations.

True to the historical Christian Amakusa, he speaks of sin, mercy and salvation, especially in later appearances.

HIBIKI TAKANE|#SAMURAISHODOWN –DLC Character #snk April 28.

Story

Hibiki is the daughter of Genzō Takane (高嶺 源蔵, Takane Genzō), a renowned swordsmith known throughout Japan during the Bakumatsu era. He had retired to an isolated area in the countryside with his daughter but continued his work with various swordsmen around the country. One fateful day, a silver-haired man approaches Genzō and requests that he forge a new sword. Though the man radiated an aura of pure, unfathomable evil, the master swordsmith finds himself unable to refuse the request. He spends a time of almost 3 months forging this sword, which he dubs the “Yaso Magatsu Hi no Tachi” (八十枉津日太刀, “Blade of Eighty Days Harbored Unwillingly”), detailing the amount of time he invested in the weapon. The labor renders him ill, however, and he is soon permanently bedridden.

He tells his daughter that the silver-haired man was the reason for his condition, and that she should pursue him and the sword that he had forged. With a concerned Hibiki by his side, he utters his last words: “The thing that I saw… that I felt, even you must understand.” Though she was confused by her father’s cryptic request, Hibiki gathers her belongings and leaves in search of the silver-haired man.

Several days later, a man named Hyo Amano stops by, hoping that Genzō would repair his weapon, the “Otokomae”, when he learns of the swordsmith’s death, he sets out to find his daughter.

Hibiki has two endings in the game; in one of them she visits her father’s grave and decides to improve her swordsmanship which can be gained if the player defeats every opponent they face in Arcade mode with her super moves. In the other ending should the player not use her super moves to finish all opponents, she tells her father that now she has a “companion“.

Fighting Style

Musō Shinden-ryū is a real style and an anachronism for the game; the style was not founded until 1932. It is a branch of Iaido. Some of her basic attacks bear some resemblance to Ukyo Tachibana‘s, where it involves frequent quick-draws, dashing-based slashes, as well as some solid counterattacks that require some precision but can prove to be fatal if landed correctly.

In Capcom vs. SNK 2, her Speed Mode ‘Custom Combos’ AKA the Ranbu Ōgi from Last Blade 2 is given to her as a normal super move. In addition she has slightly different animations for her supers in Capcom vs. SNK 2, with the blood being replaced by sparks.

Hibiki is among the few characters in CvS2 who has a unique winpose, if she defeats someone with her original SDM/Senzai Ōgi, with her hair untied as a result of her attack connecting. It’s a visual cue that the landed attack will be fatal for the enemy.

24 years later, under a tree, was waiting Samurai Shodown 64 as a prototype cart for the Hyper Neo Geo 64

Interesting story.

The Hyper Neo Geo 64 is an arcade system created by SNK, and released in September 1997, as the successor of the Neo Geo MVS, within the Neo Geo family.

It is the first and only SNK hardware set capable of rendering in 3D, and was meant to replace SNK’s older MVS system on the market. Company executives planned for the project to bring SNK into the new era of 3D gaming that had arisen during the mid-1990s, and had planned for a corresponding home system to replace the aging and expensive AES home console.

Although details regarding the planned home system are sparse, it is believed that like the AES console, much of the hardware from the Neo Geo 64 arcade platform would also have been present in the home system, meaning gameplay would be identical or nearly identical whether a given game was played at home or in the arcade. It is unknown what media the home system would have used.

However it never managed to match the huge success of the MVS, and reached its end of life in 1999. Only seven games were produced for the arcade variation of the system, none of which proved particularly popular, and the project was discontinued. The proposed home system never got beyond initial planning stages and only one of the arcade games, Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition, has been ported to home systems.

Samurai Shodown 64, known as Samurai Spirits (SAMURAI SPIRITS ~侍魂~, Samurai Supirittsu) in Japan, is a 3Dfighting game produced by SNK for its Hyper Neo-Geo 64 system. It was SNK’s first 3D fighting game. After having released four Samurai Shodown games on the Neo-Geo, SNK announced that they would be producing a new arcade hardware platform, this one 64-bit and with extensive 3D capabilities. Although it was never ported to home consoles, it was followed by a second 3D installment titled Samurai Shodown 64: Warriors Rage. 64: Warriors Rage was not released outside of Japan.

Cham Cham trailer appeared for Samurai Shodown #snk #embracedeath #samuraishodown with a collab with Guilty Gear

Cham Cham (チャムチャム, Chamu Chamu) is a character from the Samurai Shodown series who was introduced in Samurai Shodown II. She replaced Tam Tam’s role in the cast. She is the only character of the series to star in her own pachinko game.

Story

She is the younger sister of the character Tam Tam. She secretly took a village heirloom, the “Tangiers Stone” (タンジルストーン, Tanjiru Sutōn), to play with when a goblin snatched it away. She thought her parents would be angry because of it so she sets out with her pet chimpanzee “Paku Paku” (who is actually Tam Tam transformed as punishment for his failure to protect the stone) in order to look for it.

Personality

She is an energetic and optimistic girl. She’s not the smartest one of her tribe, easily angered if she thinks she’s being insulted, but she shares her brother’s bravery.

Fighting Style

Cham Cham is a catgirl in appearance and has feline mannerisms; for example, she walks on all fours when disarmed (she holds her weapon in one hand when she has it). Her taunts are also animalistic (in one, she meows and stretches like a cat, while in the other, she sits on her haunches and scratches behind her ear with her foot). Her boomerang can be thrown high into the air or at ground level, leaving her unarmed for a time; however, this may not be a total disadvantage, as her claws and kicks are enough to keep her foes at bay. Paku Paku may also be summoned to attack for her, which includes throwing skulls, emitting fireballs, and a spinning spit-kick attack.

#SNK vs. #Capcom: The Match of the Millennium is going to be next one in the “Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection” series for #NintendoSwitch.

SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium rated for Switch in Korea – Gematsu

NGPC classic SNK vs. Capcom: Match of the Millennium rated for Nintendo Switch

As listed by The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea, it’s not a 100% official but has been rated for Nintendo Switch, so ..

In this battle, the mightiest brawler is crowned!

It’s time to settle the score… 18* of SNK and Capcom’s most popular characters collide in the pivotal battle of game history! Truly a match of the Millennium!

  • Thrill to three battle formats: Single, Tag, and Team.
  • Select from three battle types to suit your playing preferences.
  • Can you play VS Mode battles and exchange various data? Of course!
  • Jump into the new SC Olympic Mode and strive to break all records.

*Eight additional characters are unlockable.

Play options includes 2-fighter tag teams, 3-fighter queue teams, and of course, fighting solo. After that, the player can choose either a Capcom-style level meter, an SNK-style charge meter, or a ‘neutral’ meter that enhances super attacks if full. Every character also has their own rival, whom they will fight at the fourth stage. The last two stages have the player’s selected character fighting the tag team of Geese and Bison, then, depending what the side opposite to their character’s is, Orochi Iori or Evil Ryu.

As a side feature, there is Olympic mode, where the player can play themed minigames such as blasting Mars aliens FPS-style (lifted from the final boss of Metal Slug 2) or helping Arthur from Ghosts ‘n Goblins hop pits to snatch up treasure, as well as there being time-attack, first strike, and survival events. The player’s performance in these games earns them special vs. points which they can use to unlock a special attack for each character.

The Match of the Millennium is capable of linking with such other games as the Card Fighters series and even the Dreamcast version of Capcom vs SNK, but the only purpose this serves is data transfer. The Japanese version could also transfer data to the Dreamcast port of The King of Fighters ’98 for character points.

The use of both companies’ material is quite extensive, from every character having their theme playing (not always from the first games they appeared in), to the featuring of stages from both universes. There is also interesting screens shown when this game is used in a monochrome Neo Geo Pocket, with such things as Alex and K’ staring at each other, Shermie dressed up as Morrigan (to Yashiro and Chris’ awe), Chun-Li doing her taunt pose while Li Xiangfei plays a Neo Geo Pocket, and Lilith and Kaede playing Neo Geo Pocket together.

Hibiki has two endings in the game; in one of them she visits her father’s grave and decides to improve her swordsmanship which can be gained if the player defeats every opponent they face in Arcade mode with her super moves. In the other ending should the player not use her super moves to finish all opponents, she tells her father that now she has a “companion“.

Personality

Hibiki has a very calm and shy personality, probably because of the suffering caused by her father’s death. Although she wants vengeance for her father’s death, she is afraid of fighting and only wants to protect her father’s legacy, and muses about the path she must take.

Her personality at her story ending depends greatly on how the player played: Should she become familiarized with her own swordsmanship, her personality becomes somewhat more determined, a little confrontational. In more recent appearances, she gains some haughtiness and becomes somewhat callous and prideful. Yet, her shyness and hesitation are still somewhat present, and in times of peace, she is cheerful and values companions like Amano.

Powers

  • Fast Draw – She can draw her sword from her sheath with uncanny speed.

Fighting Style

Musō Shinden-ryū is a real style and an anachronism for the game; the style was not founded until 1932. It is a branch of Iaido. Some of her basic attacks bear some resemblance to Ukyo Tachibana‘s, where it involves frequent quick-draws, dashing-based slashes, as well as some solid counterattacks that require some precision but can prove to be fatal if landed correctly.

Samurai Shodown will have a DLC from The Last Blade, you know, the game that deserves more love.
