Following last week’s release of Metal Slug 3 which Shaun reviewed here, SNK and Hamster have launched a classic fighter on mobile in the ACA NeoGeo series. Today’s ACA NeoGeo release really makes me wish the 8BitDo NeoGeo controller worked on iOS. Samurai Shodown II ($3.99) has released on iOS and Android as the newest ACA NeoGeo series release. Samurai Shodowon II debuted in 1994, and the fighting game includes 15 characters with a new rage system and weapon breaking attacks. I’ve been playing this quite a bit on Switch, but it is good to see it hit iOS and Android through Hamster as well. Check out a screenshot from Samurai Shodowon II on Android below:
You can buy Samurai Shodowon II ACA NeoGeo on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. As with prior releases on mobile, this costs half of what it does on consoles at $3.99. If you aren’t sure if this one is for you, I’d recommend going with one of the games Shaun recommended in his best games list. If you’ve not played an SNK re-release from Hamster you can read Shaun’s article here covering the 10 best games in the series on mobile.
