Samurai Shodown’s season pass is currently free to download on PSN

Here’s a generous offer by SNK and Athlon Games in relation to the recently released fighter Samurai Shodown. During its launch week which started yesterday the game’s season pass is free to download for everyone, even if you don’t own the game. This promotion will apparently be running until July 2nd so plenty of time to pick it up before the price is reverted from free to its regular price. According to the US Store that price would be $19.99.


The season pass is planned to include four characters with alternate skin choices. Those characters are Rimururu in August, Basara in October Kazuki Kazama in December, and Wan-Fu in February 2020. The characters will be sold separately when they arrive if you don’t grab the season one pass. If you’re in the UK you can grab the season one pass here, while those in North America can grab it here. You can also claim a free Nakoruru costume DLC after getting the season pass. A similar promotion is also running on Xbox One where purchasing the game before June 30th will net you the season pass at no extra charge, though in this case the pass is unavailable to non-owners.

In the Samurai Shodown review Nick wrote, “Samurai Shodown is a strong entry into the sea of fighters, showing a lot of love for the original series, while also being able to appeal to newcomers. A few niggles aside, people are going to be playing Sam Show for a long time. EVO just got more exciting to watch!”
