Announced as a main game for Evo 2019, which takes place in August, we already knew that Samurai Shodown would have to launch a decent amount of time before the big event. The good news is that seems to be the case, as SNK has slapped a June release window on the upcoming PlayStation 4 instalment. This should give players at least one month to get stuck in before the tournament begins.
SNK has also confirmed that the title will feature a total of 16 playable characters at launch. 13 of them will be returning characters, and three of them will be totally new.
