Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Samurai Shodown

There's always something sublime about having a fighting game return to form while also injecting something new in a competitive scene.

Samurai Shodown 2019 May Slice Down The Fighting Game Competition [Update]

It's been a while since fighting game fans had a dose of reality with how a 1-on-1 fighting game with swords should play out.
