By on

I think this should have been demoed before the release. The game is VERY good. I spent some time with the PS3 version before I sent it out for review. Great game! Download it and see for yourself.


SANTA CLARA, Calif., (February 19, 2009) – SURGE™ announced today that a free playable demo of Afro Samurai® is now available for download on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PLAYSTATION®Network for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. A merciless action adventure game centered on revenge, Afro Samurai brings together the creative best from the worlds of Hollywood and hip-hop music to deliver an unparalleled entertainment experience.

Based on the acclaimed animated series starring and executive-produced by Samuel L. Jackson, Afro Samurai follows a lone warrior who walks the earth in search of his father’s murderer while ascending into the timeless mysticism of the Samurai code. Staying true to the soul of the original series, Afro Samurai not only features familiar faces, but also additional content and background for fans of the series and newcomers alike. From the gritty musical beats of The RZA that punctuate the game’s soundtrack to the iconic voiceover of Samuel L. Jackson, the game is a non-stop, action-packed adventure with style to spare.

Graphically innovative, Afro Samurai’s dynamic cross-hatch visuals give the game a truly unique look and feel as Afro wages a brutal war against anyone standing in his way. Featuring an unrivalled combat system, players can dismember enemies with surgical precision using vigorous slices of the blade. Make a statement by cleaving an opponent in two from skull to sandals or perform cosmetic surgery, samurai style, by lopping off the nose of an adversary. Afro Samurai lets the player feel the swagger and swordsmanship of the ultimate hip-hop warrior.

Afro Samurai is rated “M” for mature by the ESRB and a full retail version is now available for a suggested MSRP of $59.99. For more information about the videogame, please visit: For more information about Afro Samurai, please visit
