Hey guys, how’s it going? I’m KK, SNK’s group supervisor, and right now I’d like to speak a bit concerning the fundamentals of Samurai Shodown. Upon first look, many declare that Samurai Shodown appears troublesome because of its weapon-based fight, however the underlying mechanics are literally fairly easy.
Every character has a lightweight, medium, and heavy slash assault in addition to a kick. That is similar to different preventing video games on the market, nonetheless what makes Samurai Shodown particular is its Rage system.
In contrast to different video games the place characters have a POW or Vitality bar that goes up with each landed hit, the Rage Gauge solely goes up when you take a success (or carry out a Simply Protection). The Rage Gauge can solely be used when it’s at full capability, and can empty itself without delay after a brief period of time. Throughout Max Rage, gamers earn a buff to their assault energy, and so they now have entry to their Weapon Flipping Method or WFT. The WFT disarms an opponent, which may vastly flip the tables in your favor.
However say you’re down a spherical and knocking on loss of life’s door. You’re not simply going to lie down and die, are you? GET HEATED by performing a Rage Explosion (by urgent gentle, medium, and heavy slash on the identical time or L2). This can put you immediately at Max Rage, and never solely will you get the added assault bonus and unlocked WFT, however now you can carry out a Lightning Blade assault. The Lightning Blade is a one-time use assault that scales based on your HP and remaining Rage Gauge. Declare victory in a single fell swoop, identical to in your favourite anime!
Do you know?
Samurai Shodown includes a new character each month till February! Final month, Hell froze over when Rimururu took the stage. This month, we now have everybody’s favourite umbrella boy, Shizumaru, slicing into motion.
You wouldn’t get many solutions even should you requested him, since he doesn’t know himself! However from what we do know, we are able to say that he’s a troubled lad touring the lands in the hunt for a solution to this query: Is the murderous rage that lurks deep in his coronary heart the results of a demon, or is it his true self?
What makes Shizumaru distinctive?
Shizumaru has loads of methods up his sleeve to not solely survive in battle, however to assert it.
Firstly, he has the power to make use of his umbrella in-air to softly float down. This could mess up your opponent as timing is every part, and messing that up by coming down slowly or all of a sudden can internet you an opportunity to break their day.
Secondly, Shizumaru can cost his weapon for a devastating assault. However that’s not all, you’ll be able to nonetheless proceed to assault even whilst you cost up your assault. Merely launch the button you selected to cost the assault to let it rip.
He might look small and weak, however come on; that is Samurai Shodown. Everyone knows seems to be may be deceiving.
