Athlon Games to publish the next “Samurai Shodown”
The next installment in SNK’s weapon-based fighting series Samurai Shodown will be published by Athlon Games. Athlon is a subsidiary of Leyou Technologies, who acquired an 81.25% stake in SNK in August 2015.
Athlon Games has previously developed and published free-to-play games for both console and PC, though Athlon confirmed to Gematsu that Samurai Shodown (Samurai Spirits in Japan) will be a normal, plain-Jane release, not a free-to-play
piece of crap game.
Samurai Shodown is scheduled to release for PS4 in summer 2019.
