After being away from the gaming scene for a while, Samurai Jack is back with a brand new adventure! Adult Swim Games, in partnership with Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky and developer Soleil Games, has announced Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time. Based on the Emmy Award-winning series and scripted by its head writer Darrick Bachman, this new action platformer is expected to launch in summer 2020 on all platforms.
Set immediately before Samurai Jack’s ultimate confrontation with his arch-nemesis Aku, Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is the great stoic hero’s untold final adventure. Trapped by Aku in an alternate timeline, Samurai Jack must team up with his closest friends and allies against some of the series’ most notorious villains to fulfill his destiny once and for all.
