Samurai Shodown, known as Samurai Spirits (サムライスピリッツ Samurai Supirittsu, Samu Supi in short) in Japan, is a competitive fighting game developed and published by SNK for their Neo Geo arcade and home platform. Released in 1993, it is the first installment in the Samurai Shodown series. In contrast to other fighting games at the time which were set in modern times and focused primarily on hand-to-hand combat, Samurai Shodown is set in feudal-era Japan (similar to Kaneko's Shogun Warriors) and was one of the first fighting games to focus primarily on weapon-based combat after the success of Capcom's Street Fighter II.

Super Coin-Op Bros.Edit

On the second episode of Super Coin-Op Bros, Jirard and Alex play Samurai Shodown, which Jirard and Alex both used to play all the time as kids. Jirard does retain some of his skills while playing, however, he does get beaten a few times.


  • Cen-an is Jirard's favorite character.
  • This is one of the first fighting games with companions (such as dogs).
  • People used to mod their Neo Geo to play the Japanese version so that the game had blood, since the US version had none.
  • The SNES version had orange colored blood.
