A Samurai Shodown party on the Wii? Maybe. SNK is giving Wii owners of Samurai Shodown Anthology a few remote controlled mini games to play. However, you won’t be slashing enemies with the Wii remote. SNK’s mini games give players control over some of the animal characters like Mamahaha (Nakoruru’s hawk), Shikuru (Rera’s wolf), Chample (Majikina Mina’s fluffy friend) and Poppy (Galford’s dog in the picture).
While PlayStation 2 owners miss out on mini-games they get online play, which will probably be removed when Samurai Shodown Anthology comes out in North America this year. Other additions for both versions include a practice mode and character color editing.
New features are always a plus, but the real reason to get Samurai Spirits Rokuban Shoubu as it’s called in Japan is six Samurai Showdown games I – VI
and V Special. The Japanese release will not include V Special/Zero, but SNK USA has it as part of the US collection.. If you can’t wait until SNK Playmore releases Samurai Shodown Anthology later this year you can import Samurai Spirits Rokuban Shoubu on July 24.
