samurai showdown 3 us english
Terry I'v seen a copy of samurai shown down 3 us english vs. should i buy this game its going for 200 pounds.I'm in two minds as i also want last blade 2 ,which one
Unless you have a preference for US releases I'd say definitely not. The Japanese AES cart is much cheaper and the insert looks better too. The artwork isn't framed by borders and the insert also features the classic blue and yellow Neo Geo logo.

Both Samurai Shodown 3 and The Last Blade 2 are superb and well worth adding to your collection. Personally I like SS3 more though.

i definitely agree with the art work ,which looks better on the jap version.but the
issue i have is from a collector's point , have or not to have save myself a few pounds by purchasing the jap version.
I bought my Japanese Samurai Shodown III copy four lousy $45 on eBay. If you really want to spend more than 4 times the amount for a different insert, sticker and manual, that's ok. A wonderful game by the way, my favorite of the series!

With the same money you could buy yourself a Japanese copy of Last Blade 2 which is a far more rare and extraordinary game from the view of a collector. And mind also that the US version of Last Blade 2 is far more expensive, afaik it's about 500 Pounds.

Hey, and welcome to NGFL! Have a good time posting and hunting! Thumbs Up
I never owned it when I had an AES but I managed to get a complete U.S. MVS kit around the end of 1995 with 8 or 9 run of the mill loose MVS carts and a perfect MV1-F board for about $300.00 from an operator friend.

Hands down the game is my favorite MVS title when it comes to aesthetics. Its playable art work with a nice dark mood to it. Pretty fun to play too Thumbs Up

I spent most of the eighties, most of my life, riding around in somebody else's car, in possession of, or ingested of, something illegal, on my way from something illegal to something illegal with many illegal things happening all around me.
