Those who have followed the journey of Samurai Jack through Season 5 know about Jack’s final confrontation with Aku. However, in the video game Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time, Aku has one more trick up is demonic sleeve — when he nears defeat, he opens a portal in time and thrusts Jack far into the past.
Season Five Jack is transported back to Season One while retaining all of his memories of what transpired. Battle Through Time will take players on an adventure through worlds inspired by the samurai’s best episodes like “The Scotsman”, “The Three Blind Archers,” and all the Aku battles.
The gameplay is a hack-and-slash platformer that promises slick action and big boss battles. Voice actors Phil LaMarr, Tara Strong, Greg Baldwin, and John DiMaggio are reprising their roles of Jack, Ashi, Aku, and the Scotsman.
Samurai Jack is a franchise that’s aged like wine. There are more fans of the show now than when it first premiered. So whether you’re a longtime fan or recently discovered the series this video game aims to deliver.
Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is expected to hit all major consoles this summer.
