Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma is the sequel to the hack-and-slash action game, based on a popular anime series, which tells the story of a black samurai trying to take revenge on the person who murdered his father. That unusual production was released back in 2009 on 7th generation consoles. The sequel was developed by the indie developer Redacted, a studio established by David Robinson – the co-creator of the first game.
The sequel’s plot involves a completely new story, focusing on Kuma, whom we first met in the five-episode TV series. However, it does not mean that we will not get to see the eponymous samurai in the game. The developers have prepared several playable characters that have appeared either in the Afro Samurai TV series or the Afro Samurai: Ressurection movie. The gameplay focuses on brutal, spectacular sword duels. The game features some elements of platforming and an advanced combat system that allows the player to perform impressive tricks and precise cuts.
In contrast to its predecessor, Afro Samurai 2 features also a co-op mode. The audiovisual layer of the game is presented in manga style, and is complemented by rhythmic hip-hop music. The quality of graphics has been significantly improved, though, all thanks to the better specs of modern computers and consoles.
