    Samurai Shodown VI (known in Japan as Samurai Spirits: Tenkaichi Kenkakuden, loosely translated to "Samurai Spirits: The World's Greatest Swordsmen") is a 2D historical-fantasy weapon-based fighting game developed by SNK Playmore and released by SNK Playmore (Sega in North America) for arcades (running Dreamcast-based Atomiswave hardware) on September 14, 2005.

    The seventh main installment of the Samurai Shodown series, Samurai Shodown VI is a "dream match" game that brings together all the combatants from the main series into one game. Along with new characters (including American soldier Andrew and Japanese maid Iroha), and a five-button control scheme (with three Slash buttons, a Kick button, and a Dodge buton), this game introduces a "Spirit Select" system, where players can choose from one of six fighting styles, five of which are based on the previous games.

    It was later ported to the PlayStation 2 in Japan only on January 26, 2006, adding a variety of new game modes, unlockable characters, and unlockable fighting styles. This version was later digitally re-released for the PlayStation Network on November 19, 2014 (in Japan) and November 22, 2016 (in North America as an import title).
