Samurai Shodown completed its first season pass, and now a second season pass is on the way. Could there be a third season pass as well? Twinfinite asked producer Yasuyuki Oda about the possibility, to which he said the following.
It’s a bit early to talk about season 3. We’re probably going to see how season 2 is received and go from there.
Oda also opened up about the challenges of bringing the game to Switch. In particular, hitting the 60fps mark was a real test of their skills.
It was definitely hard. It’s very different hardware from everything else. We were already kind of pushing the limits even with PS4 with the stages and everything.
A lot of work went into it but it was definitely a priority from the beginning because it’s a very competitive fighting game and frame rate is key.
We made sure to take care and that the art style stayed intact but keeping the priority as much as possible on performance. That was definitely the hardest part about the Switch version, making sure to optimize it from the beginning to the end. It was a real battle.
