COME PLAY SAMURAI SHOWDOWN III: BLADES OF BLOOD at our BIRTHDAY PARTY on the 16 Dec! Released in 1995, the game is the first part of a two-chapter story set between Samurai Shodown and Samurai Shodown II. The Samurai Showdown series were notable for the use of a weapon-based combat system in a 18th-century feudal Japanese setting, unlike the most other games of the genre like Street Fighter II or Fatal Fury with modern-era stories and hand-to-hand battles with special moves. These and other innovations were well received by critics and fans, making Samurai Showdown the third major SNK release for the Neo Geo systems after Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting.
