One hundred years after their deaths, six legendary holy warriors are reborn to seek justice against the former comrade who betrayed them into the hands of an evil god! The six warriors search the feudal province of Edo questing for the last Saint Soldier, Haohmaru, and their sworn nemesis Shirou Amakusa. Will the followers of the divine light triumph over the forces of darkness, or is history destined to repeat itself? Before their hundred-year journey has ended, six samurai will prove that the only thing stronger than their holy blades is the steel of their wills!

Samurai Shodown the Motion Picture is an anime movie based on the SNK video game series, Samurai Shodown. I don't know much about the game apart from the two characters featured in Capcom vs. SNK 2 (since it only seems to be released on a console called "Neo Geo" which I've never even heard of) but a quick bit of research revealed this was released around the same time the original game in the series was voted Best Video Game of 1993. Don't let that deceive you, however - this is in no way the best video game adaptation.
