“It’s not over”, says Aku in the reveal trailer, and it isn’t. Adult Swim Games and Soleil are releasing a brand new Samurai Jack game called Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time. The game is a hack and slash title where Jack fights various enemies with his sword and other weapons as he travels through different eras to a showdown with Aku.
This is not a little spin-off. The series head writer Darrick Bachman is overseeing the story and the script, while series creator Genndy Tartakovsky is also involved with Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time. Samurai Jack was a hit show in the early 2000s and returned for another season a couple of years back. The developers at Soleil Games is comprised of people who have worked on the Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive games, so the combat should hopefully be decent.
While a release date is to be confirmed for Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time it is expected to be released this year on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
