No, but that guy with the 5 (swords?) looks AWSOME.

I don't really remember any specifics but I've heard several negative things about it.
Stuff like the whole tone of the game is wrong and theres too many clone characters.

I am a Samurai Showdown/Spirits fan, but this really doesn't bring anything new to the series. I think the fact this was developed for the old NeoGeo MVS system and not the new Atomis Wave or other newer equipment really lead to just allot of sprite recyceling.

I would like to see something with all new sprites on some newer hardware.

I've played this game on xbox, like 2 times. It really seemed unpolished to me, I wasn't happy at all. I couldn't really get into the game cause the interface was so clunky-looking to me.
