Hamster has confirmed the next game getting the retro revival treatment is 2003's epic Samurai Shodown V (also known as Samurai Spirits Zero), which is due to arrive on the Japanese Nintendo Switch eShop on 5th July, with a price tag of ¥823.

No word on a western release, but it's likely to follow soon as Hamster rarely keeps us retro-loving westerners in the dark for too long. The fighting game was actually the eighth entry in the series, and takes place before the events of the original Samurai Shodown (despite having a 'V' in the title). It was also one of the last games to be released on the Neo Geo.

Are you a Neo Geo nut? Will this deep cut be jumping into your virtual arcade? Let us know in the comments below...
