On Saturday, June 22nd, Lunar Phase hosted Full Moon 12, their monthly tournament series based in Brooklyn, New York at Next Level Arcade. A variety of games were hosted at the event, including Samurai Shodown V Special, and The King of Fighters XIII. There were also a few setups for the newest incarnation of Samurai Shodown for players to try the game ahead of it’s release, and a lot of skilled players came out to compete!
This week’s Saturday Shodown had some terrific matches all around. We played Samurai Shodown V Special on Fightcade, the rules we had this tournament was 3v3 KOF style meaning that the players would choose 3 characters and when they lose they would rotate to their next character similar to the King of Fighters series.
Appreciation goes to everyone that watched the stream and participated in the tournament.
Next Tournament should be on February 17th Time: Around 2:00PM-3:00 on Fightcade. I will also mention that Samurai Shodown #8 should be a throwback to the original: Samurai Shodown. Newcomers and Veterans are all welcome to join
Although Fightcade gave us some technical difficulties at the start we did manage to play some Samurai Shodown V Special and proceed with the tournament. The rules for this tournament required character lock meaning the participants were allowed to choose only 1 character meaning they were not allowed to switch after losing.
Much appreciated to all that came to play with us and watch the stream we’re an open community that welcomes all no matter the skill level.
We do plan to play some other Samurai Shodown games available on fightcade with the original Samurai Shodown being one that might make it out on the vote on the discord. Get ready to see some clunky Heavy Slashes and Oki setups after dashing throws .
Next Tournament should be on Feburary 3rd Time: TBD
I’d like to introduce Saturday Shodown a Biweekly Tournament held on Fightcade for Samurai Shodown V special hosted by the Samurai Shodown Discord. The tournament welcomes players of all skill level to join in. Players from North America, South America and Europe are allowed to join (Sorry Asia players). Some of our tournaments have special rules such as character lock or 3v3 KOF style tournaments, the rules for the tournaments will usually be on challonge page of the tournament. We are also thinking about the possibility of doing other Samurai Shodown games that are on fightcade. Most of the discussion for the tournaments will be done on our discord and we have a bot that sets reminders on when the next tournament happens. We usually stream it on twitch too
We will be posting tournament results and Youtube VOD on DreamCancel. Feel free to join the discord and ask questions about the game and its mechanics.
