SNK has just announced the Samurai Shodown NEOGEO Collection, and as the name implies, it collects six games in the fighter series, as well as a mysterious seventh. Best of all, we don't have long to wait: it releases June 11. Even better, you won't have to pay for it, because it'll be free-to-keep on the Epic Games Store from June 11 to 18.

The pack includes Samurai Shodown I, II, III, IV Amakusa's Revenge, V and V Special, which takes in all the series' games between 1993 and 2004. As a very curious bonus, a previously unreleased version of Samurai Shodown V will also be bundled in under the name Samurai Shodown V Perfect. According to the announcement it's "the stuff of legends to SNK fans." 

Every title will feature online versus modes, with both ranked and casual tiers. Also included is an in-game museum with over 2000 archival images and music tracks. It's safe to say that if you love lavishly illustrated fighting games, this is a great package.

In addition to going free on Epic Games Store, the collection will also release on Steam for $40 on June 18. After its free period, that'll also be the package's price on EGS.
