While many companies would have been content to only make a few minor upgrades here and there and call it a sequel, SNK ignored the "if it's not broke, don't fix it" approach and went all out for their follow-up to Samurai Shodown. The result is one of the best fighting games ever made, and easily the pinnacle of the outstanding Samurai Shodown series. If you love fighting games, this one should be at the top of your Virtual Console wish list. And even if you don't like fighting games, this one's so good it might just make a fighting game fan out of you yet. If you only own one Samurai Shodown title, make sure it's this one.
