Samurai Jack is back once again, but this time he’s hacking and slashing his way in a new video game slated to arrive this Summer!
On my list of things I expected to see today, I can honestly say a brand new Samurai Jack game wasn’t one of them. It’s been three years now since the series returned to wrap up the series, so it seems an odd time to bring a game out, but I’m sure as hell not complaining!
Adult Swim Games and developer Soleil (who made Devil’s Third and Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker) announced the game, Battle Through Time, will arrive this Summer for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Even better, it’s coming with a story from the series’ original head writer, Darrick Bachman.
