Rollback Netcode Coming to Samurai Shodown


Today during SNK's official panel at EVO 2022, the company made several small announcements and confirmed a "major" reveal is planned for this Sunday. To start things off, SNK announced Samurai Shodown (2019) will be receiving a Rollback Netcode enhancement next year. Planned for release in Spring 2023, the free Rollback update will be coming to almost all platforms (with the exception of Nintendo Switch due to technical limitations, according to SNK). Below are the official images from SNK revealed during their EVO '22 panel. In place of the original "Embrace Death" slogan, the second promotional image appropriately says "Embrace Rollback".
