The arcade version "SAMURAI SPIRITS" is finally up and running! A commemorative event is also held!

アーケード版「SAMURAI SPIRITS」が遂に稼働開始!記念イベントも開催!

SNK's "SAMURAI SPIRITS" continues to gain momentum with the release of the new DLC character "Shukiri Bashara" on October 15.
The "Shukiri Busara" character has become more powerful and easier to use than in past titles, and the editorial staff of Saiga NAK is wondering if I should switch characters.
The character's good sense of weirdness (a compliment) is also great!
The arcade version of "SAMURAI SPIRITS" that has been in development, Taito's NESiCAxLive2 version "SAMURAI SPIRITS", will go live on October 24, 2019 (Thursday)!

Not just an arcade version!

Sadly, young people are becoming less and less interested in arcade games, and when they do go to the arcade, crane games and arcade games take up most of the space, and fighting game machines have become scarce.
So, even among the readers of Saiga NAK, there are a few people who think, "They're just going to put a Samuspi machine in the arcade, aren't they? I'm sure there are many of you out there who are thinking, "They're just going to put a Samuspi cabinet in the arcade.
No, no! Taito's NESiCAxLive2 (NESiCA Cross Live 2) is a high-tech cabinet that is different from the previous arcade versions!

What is NESiCAxLive2 (NESiCA Cross Live 2)?

This is a game download content system for arcade video game arcades that has been in operation since June 29, 2017.
The system is an evolution of the industry's first arcade game download system, "NESiCAxLive," and allows users to enjoy fighting games among amusement arcades nationwide.
The system has been well received by customers and amusement facility operators as a system that can be used on an ongoing basis, as the number of compatible games can be increased by downloading.


In the past, arcade machines had no choice but to use the CPU if there was no opponent in the arcade.
NESiCAxLive2, however, is connected via the Internet to all game centers nationwide, so that even if you are the only player in the center, you can play against other players from all over the country.
Furthermore, matching by rank is also possible, so you can play matches against other players of similar skill level and engage in friendly competition!
The game also supports NESiCA cards, which allow players to keep a record of their play under their registered player name, use customization functions, and participate in events.
The benefits for the retailer are that they can download more compatible game titles to the same cabinet, eliminating the need to replace the entire cabinet and thus reducing costs.
NESiCAxLive2 is a system with a lot of good things going for it!

The NESiCAxLive2 version also includes a neckbreaker, Bashara!

In conjunction with the launch of the NESiCAxLive2 version of "SAMURAI SPIRITS" on October 24th, the new "Head Slasher Sara", which was just released on October 15th, will also be available!
In addition, if you download the "NESiCAxLive2 SNK Title My App" and register as a player, you will be able to use the retro 3D costumes of Haomaru and Nakoruru, which were a bonus with the initial purchase of the PS4 and Xbox One versions and the Season Pass.
The coarse polygonal characters are tasteful! Especially when they use their secret powers!

The aforementioned "NESiCAxLive2 SNK Title My App" was previously called "KOFXIV Arcede Ver. My App," but it has been relaunched as the NESiCAxLive2 version "SAMURAI SPIRITS&quot My App", but it has been renewed to coincide with the launch of the NESiCAxLive2 version of "Samurai Spirits&quot
In addition to managing player data for "THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV Arcade Ver." as before, it will also be possible to manage player data for the NESiCAxLive2 version of "SAMURAI SPIRITS"!

You can check not only the player data but also the command list, so you don't have to worry about the command stickers on the case like in the old days!
