Description Edit | History

"Samurai Shodown (Samurai Spirits in Japan) is the name of a fighting game series by SNK.

Despite the name of the series, most of the characters are not samurai in the true sense of the word. In Japan, the name of the series is officially in katakana, but is often written in kanji (侍魂, samurai tamashii), with the second character pronounced supirittsu, “spirits”, to better reflect the game’s setting.

The earlier arcade games are also notorious for their poorly translated English, such as the word ‘victoly’ which appears at the end of each match. As with many game titles developed in Japan, Samurai Spirits had its name changed for other regions."
