Samurai Shodown Sen (Xbox 360)
Samurai Shodown Sen takes place in Japan during the twilight of the turbulent Edo period, and promises to be the most brutal and visceral instalment in the Samurai Shodown series' history. It was created for Japanese arcades to commemorate the series' 15th anniversary and the online challenge aims to replicate the arcade experience via Xbox Live. There are over 20 fighters to choose from, new and old, each with their own string of attacks and special moves. Alongside lead characters Princess Suzu and Takechiyo, a plethora of old favourites from the series have been faithfully incorporated, including Haohmaru, Galford, Hanzo Hattori, Nakoruru and Ukyo Tachibana.
