Lightspeed connection speed! It’s a bloodbath of amazing slashes!


A bunch of us folks have a tourney going on on fightcade if anyone wants to join. 26 entrants thus far.

edit: Challonge likes to fuck up time conversions. Use this for the correct tourney time.


the blood and the kills are glorious!!


There will be an online tourney of 5sp on Fightcade, saturday 21st, at 3 PM EDT:


Hope it’s at Canada Cup :o


For anyone that wants to sign up for next tourney:
It’s on a saturday, you do your time conversion. [1pm pst tho]


Fightcade tournament for Samsho5sp going on this Saturday! There are players of all skill levels taking part and this time were doing more of a 3vs3 format (characters not players.)

If anyone’s interested in signing up, go here:

And as always we have a great discord (that includes @sfkingalpha as an FBI agent :lol:) that includes some OG top players as well. You should all join:


A tad late but, merry christmas and happy new year, samsho’ers


Happy New year everyone!

I got the PSN version of 5 Special, so if anyone wants games or even wants to train, add me (and mention Samsho) PSN: TheDoctaMario


I hope SNK aren’t being cheeky, and it’s a really Happy New Year for SamSho fans!


That would be pretty cool too get news on a new Samsho game!


Turns out Samurai Shodown 5 Special is one of the games that’ll be at AnimEvo in Japan this weekend! They’re streaming part of the 67 player tournament I believe on this Twitch account:

Stream starts at 8:30am EST Sunday


ah cool thanks


Sadly, the Twitch stream of the Samsho5sp tournament at AnimEvo wasn’t archived. Fortunately a couple people clipped a few highlights from the tourney:

Also, SNK released a free 5sp theme for PS4 and Vita today that’s got some hype wallpapers and fantastic music!


they didnt archive it? those fools! how can they be so half baked and short sighted with their efforts? that SSVS tournament is history in the making.


I guess they didn’t know that Twitch doesn’t archive by default until it was too late. Either way, we got some highlight clips of the stream:


ah thanks


Who thinks they got Samsho chops? Online tournament?


Me @WorstPlayer (depending on which game were talking about anyway.) Which SamSho games do you play?

We also have a SamSho community discord and have regular biweekly tournies. Join up!
