New Samurai Jack video game revealed for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Soleil game studio, the creators of Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, is developing a new Samurai Jack game, the first in 16 years. The announcement of the game came with a gameplay trailer showing a bit of the combat system, weapons and worlds that players might look for.

Published by Adult Swim Games, Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is based on the cult series that aired on Cartoon Network between 2001 and 2004, with a final season released later in 2017 on Adult Swim. According to ScreenRant, the 2017 comeback of Samurai Jack was a success and gave a much-needed ending to the series.

The game trailer was released on IGN’s Youtube channel, and from it, we can have a glimpse of how the game looks. It seems to be a hack n’ slash RPG, using the same iconic art from the series. The trailer also shows both the original look of Jack and the post-apocalyptic one from the 2017 revival.

The game’s story was created by the authors of the original Samurai Jack, and it will fit into the series finale. The original voice-actors will also come back to voice their respective characters. Throughout the game, players will meet familiar allies and enemies, and travel through time, visiting “classic worlds and moments from your favourite episodes”. Given its RPG component, players will be able to unlock new skills and equip over a dozen weapons, including Jack’s signature katana.

 

The game’s system requirements are the following:

    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows 7 64bit
    • Processor: Intel Core i5 3rd Generation
