There’s also a Kiwami Pack that includes all 3 Season Passes as well as the base game, priced £54.47. Order these before 18th June and get an early buyers discount of 20%.
Season Pass 3 is releasing its third character today, Shiro Tokisada Amakusa. This character first appeared as the final boss in the first game back in 1993 but also in Samurai Shodown III, Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa’s Revenge and Samurai Shodown V Special. Shiro Tokisada Amakusa joins the already released Cham Cham and Hibiki Takane, with just one more character from Guilty Gear to come.
Samurai Shodown is available on Steam now.
