    I still can’t believe this is a thing.

    • straightthrucru

      I can. It’s cool as hell!

  • Coloso90909

    Is not it better to call it “new Afro Samurai”? The old one did Bandai Namco.

  • BizarreJelly

    I hope big Sam will be back to voice Afro.

  • Anime10121

    Hope it plays better than the first one…

    Its an awesome property to have a game of, but the first just played like a generic hack n slash :/

    Time to get back into Afro Samurai. It’s been ages since I’ve even watched it.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I hope it’s good. Picking up a dormant license like this is a waste of everyone involved’s time if it turns out to be some garbage.

    Never played the first game, but looking forward to playing both after the newest one comes out.

  • Learii

    any steam for Gamescom?

    • Zackasaur


      It’s too early for those to be announced, but you can count on it.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    I’m a little hesitant, the first wasn’t bad but it also wasn’t exactly anything great from what I saw.

    Though it would be cool if the story takes place after Resurrection.

    (Like how the hell did Justice come back?)

  • Aldridge517

    Hope it turns out better than the first one. I want an open world, not just a couple stages and flashback scenes.

  • Revorse

    I still never got to see the anime. Netflix took it away to quick. But I’ve heard good thing about it. Maybe the game should be good too.
