Samurai Shodown VI finally playable on U.S. consoles by way of anthology

I hope that none of you have had the misfortune of missing out on the Samurai Shodown games, as they're some of the best 2D fighters ever produced. But if you have been avoiding the series for whatever reason, there's still hope: a compilation disc will be out later this year that contains practically every title in the franchise (Samurai Shodown, II, III, IV, V, V Special, and VI).

Thanks to an interview with SNK at GDC, we know that Samurai Shodown Anthology will be out in Q4 for PS2, PSP, and Wii. The best news, however, is that  Samurai Shodown VI, a game that hasn't been available in the U.S. outside of arcades, will be among the titles included in the package.

Looks like I'd better start thinking about getting a PSP right about now. Anyone else anticipating this anthology as much as I am?
