Afro Samurai 2 currently in development

Afro Samurai 2, the sequel to the 2009 action game loosely based on the Afro Samurai manga and anime series, is currently being developed by Redacted Studios and published by Versus Evil.

The first game was developed by Namco Bandai Games for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Former Namco Bandai senior producer David Robinson left the company two years ago to form Redacted Studios. Robinson had worked on the first Afro Samurai title and, when he left the studio, he took with him the rights to make other games in the series. Redacted Studios has a core team of 17 developers who are currently working on the sequel.

Afro Samurai 2 will have an original storyline and focus on the character Kuma. Robinson told Polygon that players will have the opportunity to play as characters that were unplayable in the first game, and there will also be a co-op mode.

More information about the game, such as release window and the platforms on which it will launch, is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
