Samurai Jack Video Game Announced

  • 144

Ready for a new hack-and-slash adventure? Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time has been announced and it will be available to play on PC, PS4, Xbox & Switch.

I personally love these kinds of games and can't wait to see the final product. This game will allow you to play your favorite characters from the show such as The Scotsman, Scamouche, Sir Rothchild and more.

 

Adult Swim Games and Japanese developer Soleil Games have announced a brand new video game based on the hit animated series, Samurai Jack. IGN has the exclusive first trailer for Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time which is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch this summer....

Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is set before Jack’s final fight with Aku, an evil entity that trapped Jack in alternate timelines throughout human history. Jack will have to fight through several different timelines in order to reach Aku and defeat him.

The script for the Samurai Jack game is written by series head writer Darrick Bachman. The gameplay will combine hack-and-slash gameplay and allow players to wield a variety of different melee and ranged weapons.

The 3D art style still retains the stylized look of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Emmy Award-winning animated series, which is a huge plus. The developers, Soleil Games, are a small studio from Japan comprised of ex-Ninja Gaiden/Dead or Alive developers so they have some background in 3D hack-and-slash games.

I love the art style of samurai jack. I remember watching the tv show as a kid, and always thinking that the animation style was so different and creative compared to other shows that aired during the time.
