Publishers adult swim have announced a new project: Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time, an action platform game based on the series finale of the Samurai Jack show. It'll have some of the same worlds, moments, and characters as the show, including Scaramouche and Sir Rothchild, and will be voiced by the original voice-actors.


The Samurai Jack TV show ended back in 2017, but the series finale featured an epic battle against Aku's fortress. In the game, Samurai Jack is tasked with travelling through time and space to defeat Aku. There'll be over a dozen weapons, and the chance to train and unlock new skills throughout the game. The devs say it's "An untold Samurai Jack adventure that ties into the epic series finale... Travel to a dark future to free mankind. Dive into the past to face off against terrifying monsters."

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
