SNK has announced a brand new Samurai Shodown game built using Unreal Engine 4. Its working title is Samurai Spirits, as that's the name of the series in Japan. It's due to slice open PlayStation 4 at some point next year.

All we have to go on right now is the brief announcement trailer that we've embedded above, but it's great to see this classic fighting game franchise return in a more modern form.

We'll no doubt hear more about it in the near future, but until then, sharpen your steel in the comments section below.
