The cover scan of issue 47 of Sega Pro CD was kindly supplied by Tiago Santana
 
A one-fight demo of SNK's Samurai Shodown.  Three levels of difficulty can be selected but the character choice for both the player and opponent (CPU or a second player) is limited to Haohmaru and Jubei.  The full game, like its stable mate Fatal Fury Special, is incredibly rare.
 
A note about Sega Pro CD  issue numbers - originally Sega Pro CD was published separately from Sega Pro, staring in October 1994 with issue 1.  At the start of 1995 Paragon began using the issue number sequence from the original Sega Pro on both - hence the big jump.  Versions with and without the cover CD were available (with a price difference) and those who bought the wrong one could send away 3.95 to get the demo posted to them.
