Why wasn't Samurai Shodown V Special released on the Samurai Shodown Anthology?

I mean seriously, isn’t it a better version of the original version? They previously said that it would be on there, yet it’s not. Our best bet is just to see if it will come out for XBLA and PSN.

According to rumors, it’s because SS V Special was the last game produced for the old Neo Geo system, thus as a “hommage” to the loyal NG/SNK fans, SNK has somehow vowed to not translate the game for any other system. Or so goes the saying… :wonder:

I guess the only thing we can do is hope for an XBLA/PSN release, but they’re already busy with the first one, which is in my opinion a waste of time because the second one is better than it. They could’ve released SS5s intstead so they could make up for the omission in the Anthology. The series itself just isn’t getting enough love in the states.
