SNK has announced that Samurai Shodown V Special is heading to both PlayStation 4 and Vita at some point this summer. Initially released in Japanese arcades in 2004, Samurai Shodown V is widely regarded as one of the best entries in the series.

The fighter will be reappearing on Sony's current-gen console and handheld in its original form, complete with its surprisingly gore-ridden kill animations. It'll also come with online multiplayer and Trophy support, as you'd expect.

Will you be sharpening your blade for this one? Please don't cut each other in half in the comments section below.
