The world is in chaos. Society has been turned upside down. In this law-less world, samurai, ninja masters, knights and soldiers fight using all the skills and secret techniques at their command. It's a cruel and brutal world - if you lose hold of your sword, fight with your bare hands! Use your anger to defeat your enemies! In a world without order, the samurai stands alone against the forces of chaos… Violent, heart-pounding sword fighting! Carefully judge your timing for each character. Get in close and flip away your opponent's weapon. Discover the true spirit of the samurai! Check out the new Rage Gauge! You store up extra energy each time you are injured, and rage forth with extra attack power when the gauge hits maximum. Use the bombs dropped into the screen to corner and destroy your enemy. Pick up old gold coins to increase your point score, and food items to restore life. Lots of attack methods! Fight with swords, punch and kick, and use the many and varied special attacks and special sword attacks. Some characters even use deadly attack animals to defeat opponents! Control the boss character Shiro Tokisada Amakusa in the VS game, making a total of 12 selectable characters for sizzling game play!

Last year's hottest arcade Fighter comes to the home.

Samurai Shodown from Takara arrives on the Genesis with most of the features that made it a winner.

This cart features 12 fighters, tons of special moves, power-ups, spectacular art, and a Rage Gauge that increases your attack power.

The game features a Story mode (in which you workyour way through the fighters), a Versus Battle (you fight a friend), and a Shodown mode (five-player tournaments).

What's missing from the original is some of the blood, some of the art, the zooming view, a majority of the voice, and most of the intro cinematics.

But even scaled down, Samurai Shodown stands up as a solid Fighter.

Hot Hints

  1. Grab the Meat to restore life.
  2. Run away from the Bombs.
  3. Play defensively. Block the opponent's move, then attack.
