Um, no. That news was posted months, if not over a year ago. Only SS5 normal will appear on Xbox. SS5 Special console developments got canned after the SS5S censorship scandal.

It talks about the X-Box release for November, and says "also for PS2". However, it's not marked as SSVS, just the original SSV.

It could still be "Special" though. Weirder things have happened with game titles in the past. Remember when when SNK released the original KOF '98 for the Dreamcast and called it "King Of Fighters '99 Dream Match"? Also, remember when Namco's arcade version of Galaga 88 was called "Galaga 90" when it was released on the TG-16 home console in the US?

We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Scroll down.Man, wake up. When it says "Release date: TBA", when a game of the same series that came out a year later already has a quarter specified, it means there is no game. Why don't you "add it to your games" and let us know what happens (rolls eyes until becomes dizzy and vomits).

The game is not coming out unless this is something SNK USA is going to port themselves.

SS Tenka already has a PS2 release date in Japan, too.

Agree. With SS Tenka on the way, I don't think a port of SSVS will ever see the light of day. The main reason why I got the Neo version.

Some girl went apeshit on her classmate with a box cutter because she was obsessed with some kind of anime in Nagasaki and there were people crying about the violence in SS5 Special because they could see their precious rurus get beheaded.

As a result, SNKP delayed the AES release a full week JUST so they could censor them. They got rid of the zetsumeis they've been spending weeks advertising on their website and all generic fatalities. This created bugs in the game and sent the whole Neo Geo community into an uproar.

Fearing they'll suffer the same fate with a console release, they decided to can all SS5S console development.

Actually I stopped using Amazon after I waited over a month for something that had already come out. I don't have time during the week to hit up the game stores, so online shipping is usually the way I go.

Also I hated to disrupt the scintillating conversation above, but it looks like December 6th is the new ship date (at least for the XBox).

Considering that the leap from cart to disc media would necessitate some sort of red-book soundtrack is likely the upgrade. Higher qualty samples too, I bet. Don't forget filtered graphics.

Of course.

I don't think they would dare muck it up with 3D Bgs, if that was what you were thinking. No real upgrades.

Never played the abomination, so I wouldn't know. I beg the arcade (not really) at school to get a MVS and pick up on the cheap carts, but the refuse to step beyond Snk vs Capcom (which Im sure if the board version, anyways).

The only thing worth playing in the arcade at McMaster is Street Fighter Third Strike, but I'm sooo bored of it.

If only school would get a 4-slot with:

Kof98
MotW
SS2
Metal Slug 1
-and then get the occasional new game for us to try out and get sick of. Or just keep a stack in the back. All the crazy asians would make that thing pay for itself with any post Kof97 game.

Samurai Shodown 5 is an Xbox port of the Japanese PS2 port, so Yumeji and Sankuro are playable from the start, and Poppy is unlockable as well.

It will have uncensored blood and a translated storyline. In fact, it appears it will be translated into a variety of different languages besides english.

5 Special was a rumor that was brought up last year and has been denied. It will not come to PS2 or Xbox in any form at this time.

I would rather have it translated by a bunch Japanese people then some shitty Playmore american trash so they can insert "dude" and any other fucking awful crap they can think up cause its suppose to be funny.

Have you actually played Playmore USA translated games, before? I've never seen them insert anything of the sort and I've bought them all. Actually, since they were established, their translation quality actually has gone up. It's actually rather decent, but it loses a bit of charm. While it is serious or humorous as intended, it isn't quite a funny as the old SNKglish, which made things funny by accident. In fact, you're more likely to have comic relief in a serious game with the old SNKglish.

Yes, actually I think I have played all of them. I am just saying all translations done by americans suck. Whether its SNK Playmore or any other company. We get some shat story that has nothing to do with the actual story. Or they just change it enough so the average stupid american will get a good laugh. If there is one thing every american translator knows its that we americans want some bullshit translation that has nothing to do with the story and gives everyone a good laugh. Cause if it was actually serious no one would want to buy it cause are small american brains could not take in the complex storyline.

Not entirely true. It may make SSV Special obsolete, but not SSV. SSV still has a story mode intact, this time, translated. So in a way, the unique aspect of that alone does make it a rather significant release. Tenka wont have that, but it should make a nice followup. SSV English will practially be as much a SS fan's collector's item as it is a game.

Actually Sony does not hate 2D. They only hate the part about SNK not being able to push the hardware. Sony will release whatever makes money. If you were actually follwing the previous SNk-Playmore interviews, then you would know this. Sony wants 2D games to look like Guilty Gear.

Capcom was able to release Capcom Classics Collection, because it is what it is. A classic collection.

If your so angry, then get an AES or an MVS cab. And call it a day.
Actually you can mod your PS2 and import games. Let's see what else.......

And all the while, they release titles such as Sega Classics Collection, Namco Museum and Activision Anthology. The PS2 can run the majority of games found on Activision Anthology without even being turned on (sarcasm, folks).

Maybe Sony doesn't hate 2D games. However, they obviously have a problem with SNK/P titles and it has to be much deeper than games "not pushing the hardware". Hell, "Oink!" could run on my Mac Classic without slowdown! ;)

And all the while, they release titles such as Sega Classics Collection, Namco Museum and Activision Anthology. The PS2 can run the majority of games found on Activision Anthology without even being turned on (sarcasm, folks).

If SNK started releasing there own calssics collections, I bet Sony would allow it.
Andi f the games were online, then Sony wouldn't hesitate.

I guess if SCEA wasn't so harsh on single 2D games and such, we would actually have more shooters here. So much quality stuff, but locked away in Japan. Heck, Cave has enough to make a collection, but I doubt that will ever happen.

So, when is Samurai Shodown V Special coming to US PS2 and XBox? I can't wait!! :kekeke:

On a side note, anyone notice how SSV for XBox keeps getting pushed back again and again? EB now lists it at 12/19/05, at this rate if it comes out in first quarter 2006 we'll be lucky!! :annoyed:

Yes, I have noticed that. I have been trying to pick up this game since its first release date. Which was in november. I think this has been pushed back 3 times now. and it seems the release date of Dec 22 isn't happpening either. I have a feeling this game is gonna get canceled in the USA.

Read the thread title, you stupid, cock-gobbling thunderdouche. "Special", you dumbfuck. "Special." This was a thread about Special coming to PS2 and Xbox, when we've known for months it wasn't. That's why people want the thread to die. Don't you feel like a complete ignoramous now, you stupid twat?

I hope you DID put money down on an Xbox port of SamSho 5 Special, so that every 7 days, Gamecrazy can laugh at what a shitwhore you are, and tell you, "No, it didn't come in this week, you ridiculous goon."

Shit, I'm going to buy a HD w/ the HD advanced disk to import for ps2. Getting an Xbox just for the SNK titles doesn't seem worth it/

I think when people say "special" they just mean samurai showdown 5 in general. I think we all understand that 5 special is not being released. We are just looking for some sort of port to play on xbox live.

However were not fucking game nerds like yourself and have to correct everything everyone says. "It's not samurai showdown 5 special", It's samurai showdown 5". Blah, blah, blah.

If your tired of hearing about this this release then un-fucking subscribe from the thread and quit whining like a little girl.

Maybe you think when people say "KOF 2003", they really mean "Mortal Kombat". Did you ever learn how to read, little boy? Read the beginning of this thread. This thread was about the rumor that SS5S, which is a different game than SS5, was coming to home consoles other than Neo.

It wasn't. Even fucking Abster got that, somehow making him less stupid than you, so that's really not something you should be drawing attention to.

The other thing you didn't get, was that I was joking in my post to NeoTheranthrope, otherwise I probably would have stuck to one or two insults rather than take it to such a ridiculous level. I never had anything against that guy, other than his occasional bad taste in anime.

But you are legitimately stupid. I mean, you really are an idiot.
