So many samurai games incoming... I wonder if we're going to see ninja games too in the near future.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

not a good idea for the name change, samurai showdown has name recognition. this with all the other games coming out will do little to set this apart.

If I remember correctly (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong), the game/franchise has always being called Samurai Spirits in Japan, with the name change applying only for the western markets. I don't see why they won't do the same again.

OT: The looks of the game are very similar to those of Street Fighter IV and V. We'll see if it's as good as the previous ones.



Please excuse my bad English.
