Rising Star Games has secured the rights to publish Samurai Showdown Sen in PAL territories exclusively for Xbox 360.

Developed by SNK Playmore, Samurai Showdown Sen is the 11th game in the classic weapons-based fighting series. The game takes place in Japan during the twilight of the turbulent Edo period.

Originally released in Japanese arcades, Samurai Showdown Sen follows a young European girl named Suzu, rescued from a sinking ship off Japan's coast, adopted by the Amori Clan and raised as Princess Suzu. A decade later she saves Takechiyo, a self-proclaimed master of martial arts, after his ship sinks and he ends up washed on the beach; soon after this chance meeting, the tables turn when Princess Suzu mysteriously disappears and Takechiyo pledges to find his missing rescuer.

Alongside Princess Suzu, Takechiyo and a host of new characters, a plethora of old favourites from the series have been faithfully incorporated, including Haohmaru, Galford, Hanzo Hattori, Nakoruru and Ukyo Tachibana. The game features over 20 warriors in total.

"The kudos the SNK series carries sits comfortably within our portfolio and fans of the sword-fighting series won't be disappointed; the 3D graphics simply must be seen," said Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games.

In addition to single-player and single-system multiplayer, Samurai Showdown Sen will also offer Xbox LIVE play and a worldwide ranking system.

Rising Star Games will release Samurai Showdown Sen on Xbox 360 in Spring 2010.

There should be a next gen installment of Bushido Blade instead. And for all platforms.

I agree Karlius,
I'm just not 'convinced' (sorry to steal your phrasing)

It's a 3d Samsho, it's gonna fail. I loved 5 special edition though.


Also, any idea how bloody this game is going to be?
