Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma Volume 1 will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC on September 22, publisher Versus Evil announced.
The game will also be available for Xbox One “shortly thereafter [the PS4 and PC release] at a date to be announced.” The PlayStation 4 version will also receive a special discounted Trilogy bundle containing all three volumes of the game for 20 percent off the regular price (30 percent off for PlayStation Plus members). Volume 2 and Volume 3 will launch at a later date. Each will have its own story arch, characters, combat styles to master, and original soundtrack.
A sequel to the 2009 PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game, Afro Samurai 2 is a third-person actin game and picks up where the first game left off. The story follows the path of Kuma, a cybernetically enhanced killing machine with a bear’s head who was once Afro Samurai’s closest childhood friend called Jino. After Kuma is defeated by Afro, he regains consciousness, but must regain his strength, humanity, and sanity in order to go after Afro and avenge the deaths of those he loved, including his adopted little sister Otsuru, who was murdered at the Sword School massacre.
