After a 16-year hiatus, Samurai Jack returns to video game consoles
Adult Swim Games revives the once-popular Samurai Jack
A new edition of PAX East is taking place at a convention center in Boston, and it will focus on immersing people in everything related to gaming. These events usually come loaded with big surprises and announcements, and one new video game will be presented at this conference. For Samurai Jack fans, the first game based on the show will be released in more than 15 years to celebrate the revival of the show back in 2017.
Developed by Adult Swim Games, Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is on its way and it was announced last Tuesday. The game itself will feature the main character of this action-adventure title that originally ran from 2001 until 2004. Now, along with the new edition of the show, this time-traveling video game title will be hitting all mainstream gaming consoles, including PC. “I have to get back. Time has lost its effect on me,” Jack says in the brief trailer unveiled on Tuesday. “Still, my sword is as sharp as ever.” Not many more details about the gameplay were revealed, the trailer showed hack and slash action with a pixelated Jack.
For fans, it has been a really long time since the last Samurai Jack game was released back in 2004. The game The Shadow of Aku was released for PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube, and, for this new game, based on the time-traveling features, most likely, the new game takes place before the final battle Jack has with Aku. More details of this game will be revealed at the upcoming PAX East convention.
