    Samurai Spirits Amakusa Kourin (サムライスピリッツ 天草降臨) is a 2D fighting game developed by SNK as part of the Samurai Spirits (Samurai Shodown in the west) series. It was released, among other consoles, for the Sega Saturn.

    History

    Amakusa Kourin is the fourth main entry in the series. Had it been released in the western world, it would have likely used the name Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa's Revenge like other ports. Curiously despite being a Japanese exclusive, the game offers a language selection option, and if set to either English, Spanish or Portuguese, the title screen will use the localised name.
