          INTRODUCTION
    o---------------------o
    This is the 4th installment of Samurai Showdown and it would go on to be the
    last Samurai Showdown in the main series for an unknown amount of years until
    the release of Samurai Showdown 5 aka Samurai Spirits Zero. It is part 2 of an
    interquel meaning it took place after Samurai Showdown 3 and before Samurai
    Showdown 2 thus the chronology of Samurai Showdown goes like this: 5,6,1,3,4,2
    and yes that does look wierd I know. Returning to Samurai Showdown is Charlotte
    and Jubei and Tam Tam. New characters are The Kazama brothers: Kazui and Sogetu

          MOVELISTS

    Each character has a set of special moves in addition to the normal attacks
    given to them. They are executed by moving the joystick in a certain sequence
    and pressing the appropiate attack button. Sometimes, a character can perform
    an extra move by doing a normal attack at close range.
