Redacted Studios is developing an Afro Samurai sequel for next-generation consoles and the PC, publisher Versus Evil has announced. For the uninitiated, this will be the follow-up to the Afro Samurai game from 2007 that came out for Xbox 360 and PS3.
The original Afro Samurai, which was loosely based on the anime and manga series of the same name, received average reviews. Most critics praised the game’s unique style and simple combat system, but criticized the camera and frustrating boss fights.
In terms of content, the upcoming third-person adventure game will include a new story, new playable characters and improved special moves and combos.
