Samurai Shodown Sen is the eleventh installment of the classic fighting series by SNK Playmore and the fourth designed in full three-dimensional. It is a production set in Japan, during the Edo dynasty. We play the role of warriors fighting with different types of weapons.
In Samurai Shodown Sen, the creators made nearly thirty playable characters available to players. Among them were old friends - including Haohmaru, Galford, Hanzo Hattori, Nakoruru and Ukyo Tachibana - as well as new heroes aspiring to be the best warriors - Suzuhime, Kim Hye-Ryen, J, Claude and Takechiyo. Each character has a detailed historical background and individual statistics, fighting in a personalized style (resulting from the type of weapon used), thanks to which he stands out from the rest of the heroes.
The combat system proposed in Samurai Shodown Sen resembles that known from the Soul Calibur cycle. The warriors therefore have several basic attacks that can be combined to form a deadly combo. While wreaking havoc on a rival's health bar, special energy bars are loaded, entitling the rival to activate special skills. Power Slash allows for more sophisticated, horizontal and vertical cuts, Rage Explosion increases the force with which blows are inflicted, while Guard Shatter allows the player to break through the opponent's defense. Each round can also be completed in a very impressive way by attacking the enemy with a so-called "finisher".
Samurai Shodown Sen offers high quality graphics designed in high resolution. The game also includes online multiplayer mode and access to a series of rankings, collecting data on the results achieved by players from all over the world.
