Publisher Versus Evil (Banner Saga) announced Wednesday that it will release a new Afro Samurai video game. Redacted Studios is developing the game for the PC and next-generation consoles. The third-person action-adventure game will feature new characters and a new story.
Animation studio Gonzo adapted Takashi Okazaki's 1999 Afro Samurai seinen manga into the Afro Samurai television mini-series (2007) and later into the Afro Samurai: Resurrection television movie (2009). Both anime projects became the bestselling anime DVD releases of their respective years.
Indomina Group announced in July 2011 that it would be producing a live-action adaptation of Afro Samurai with Samuel L. Jackson and Gonzo. Filming was originally scheduled to begin in the Dominican Republic in 2012.
