The classic fighting game Samurai Shodown II comes to Xbox LIVE Arcade in all its action-packed glory! Haohmaru is attacked by a sinister assailant. This would-be assassin has been clearly manipulated by an evil force, and promises with his last breath to own Haohmaru's soul. Haohmaru's mentor and fencing master insists that Haohmaru stay away from the evil forces and avoid confrontation, but this he cannot do. The two share a few drinks to celebrate their reunion after a long separation, but at dawn, Haohmaru slips out unannounced to embark on his journey. An audacious smile plays on his lips.
