Samurai Riot: Definitive Edition

Hound Picked Games, together with Wako Factory, a French indie development studio, is excited to announce Samurai Riot Definitive Edition, after its successful launch in 2017 is soon to be rereleased on Nintendo Switch and PC. With  constant community and forum requests for a console version, the Nintendo Switch releases on June 1st 2022 with new features and enhancements to make it as a 2D, solo or co-op arcade beat’em up not to be missed!

New, bigger, better, a must play!

Since the original incarnation this new definitive version offers lots, lots more,

New features:

  • New dialogs
  • Pixel perfect stability and optimization (10 times lighter than the initial version)
  • Slicker and improved combos (easier to make huge combos for average player)
  • New updated  backgrounds and ambiance

Fans of this genre can look forward to a visual treat, where a backdrop story compels the player to really think about their decisions in game and the ramifications of their choices . Having been hired to bring peace and tranquillity to the warring land, each choice you make as a Samurai, Tsurumaru/ Sukane, will have an influence on your destiny and, with an arsenal of deadly attacks at your disposal, the fight to make it through each battle will require guile, skill and forethought!

“We wanted to release Samurai Riot Definitive Edition on Switch because it’s an “old-school” cooperative game and the switch perfectly embodies the “couch game” aspect that we imagined, both in your living room or at a picnic table.”

-Charlotte Buchet – art director and co-founder of Wako Factory

Samurai Riot offers a plethora of choices and features including both solo and cooperative play, where the story immerses both players equally, with a multi-branching storyline, complete with eight different endings. Conversely, you could enter a PVP fight against your partner to win the lead! The more you play, the more you accumulate points to unlock new fighting schools for better replay value.

Easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master, Samurai Riot Definitive Edition rewards the more demanding gamer with deeper content. Players can choose from 14 fighting schools that add a plethora of gameplay variation to the character’s moves and the devastation they can unleash upon their enemies.

Features:

  • A unique cooperative system with devastating combined attacks
  • Multi-branching storyline with moral decision making
  • 8 different endings
