      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
