Players on Xbox Series X|S can now enjoy Samurai Shodown at a smooth 120 FPS, creating a fighting game experience like no other. Samurai Shodown also supports Smart Delivery, allowing owners of the Xbox One version to upgrade to the Xbox Series X|S version for free.

With rollback netcode the game feels exactly as it does if you were playing someone offline. If there are connection issues then the game skips or rewinds. With delay based netcode instead of skipping the game slows down and there is input lag in the controls so you have to adjust your timing on things which is fucked in a fighting game.

High frames in fighting games is awesome. Precision is critical unless you are just a button masher (As I am with most games, haha)

120fps fighting game? I guess animations aren't tied to fps....but then you'd still just have 60fps animations, or is the game running at 2x speed?

Correct. Also, the netcode for this game is bad even if compared to other Delay based netcode games. It's THAT bad.

I hope this becomes a trend going forward for fighting games. Hopefully Guilty Gear Strive does the same.

The game seems to be running a little bit worse for me on Xbox series X. The loading times went from 3-6 to 8-10 secs and there seems to be some screen tearing at times!

This game have NEVER gone on sale on Xbox.
Not once.
Ive had it on my XB wish list since it launched.
Not sure where you are or if you're strict digital-only, but I got a new hard copy for $20 from Amazon last week. The new version that launched yesterday with the update comes with the Season 1 pass and Cham Cham for $60 so you get some value there.

I buy fighting games digitally just to be able to jump into a few quick rounds without having to disc swap. Unless I missed it - I never saw Shodown go on sale on xbox. Its been out for awhile now too. Thanks for the tip about the amazon deal - i never even considered getting the disc version but i might have to break that routine.

Despite everything, I'm still waiting for a Steam release. I don't even care about playing online or whatever, this was just one of my favorite fighting franchises from back in the day, so I'm satisfied just playing single player and arcade modes. EGS exclusivity should die somewhere around June, so here's hoping they finally bring it over. Does the current PC version include support for 120fps?
