But its colors aren’t just there for visual effect.It’s a split-screen local multiplayer game where you must elude your enemies, camouflage by changing colors, and strike when your victim least expects it.Though developer Team OK originally debuted the game in 2016 for the PlayStation 4, it launched a PC and Mac version on December 12.Team OK project lead Kevin Wong says the team studied a lot of samurai films to replicate their tense atmosphere, slow buildup, and consequent explosive action.Iconic film director Akira Kurosawa was a big influence, as was an episode from Genndy Tartakovsky’s Cartoon Network series Samurai Jack.“Broadly speaking, it refers to more action-driven films centered around stylish violence like the Zatoichi series, but broader considerations would include more character-driven stories like [Kurosawa’s] Seven Samurai or Rashomon.”
p Samurai Jack, which ran for four seasons in the early 2000s under the tutelage of animator Genndy Tartakovsky, was always dark.After a duel with the demonic entity Aku in the premiere, Jack was sent through a time portal into the future where Aku had taken complete control of the planet, turning Earth into a wasteland just as eccentric and cruel as Aku himself.Then Jack, armed with nothing but his magic sword, had two goals: Fight injustice wherever he could, and get back to the past.Samurai Jack didn’t answer those questions.But when this year’s revival began airing on Adult Swim in March, it quickly became clear how seriously the fifth (and likely final) season of of the show was going to be about addressing them—and how in doing so it was going to become one of the best revivals on television.He’s clad in futuristic armor, shooting guns atop a motorcycle.
In the first full trailer for the return of Samurai Jack, it looks like mega-mystical archvillain Aku has won a decisive victory over the series main character.After a long wait and a bunch of recent teasers, Cartoon Network dropped a promo clip that properly sets up the stakes for the new season of Genndy Tartakovsky s beloved action show.Jack s stuck in a dystopian reality where Aku s closed all the portals that could have returned the swordsman to his proper time.The grizzled hero has stopped ageing and is facing down what looks like a final battle against those who carry on Aku s wicked work.The clip makes it seem like the stylish aesthetic that won so many fans for the show is coming back in spades.Season five of Samurai Jack begins in the US on March 11th.
One of the most iconic and beloved Cartoon Network series of all time is making a comeback.Ever since the show s fourth season ended in 2004, creator Genndy Tartakovsky has teased fans with potential plans for a movie or a new season.After a decade of waiting, it began to seem unlikely that the fan favorite series would ever return, but in 2015, Adult Swim decided to greenlight a fifth and final season.It s been 50 years since we saw Samurai Jack and time has not been kind to him, reads the synopsis.Aku has destroyed every time portal and Jack has stopped aging, a side effect of time travel.It seems he is cursed to just roam the land for all eternity.
It s very short, but oh so sweet.Adult Swim has dropped another new teaser for the incoming return of Genndy Tartakovsky s beloved animated series, and it doesn t exactly give us much in the way of details—it s literally just Jack standing in the rain.But it looks so slick and stylish that a shot of Jack standing in the rain, sword ready, is also one of the coolest and most exciting things you ve ever seen.It s been so long since we ve seen Jack that he doesn t have to do anything at all to have us chomping at the bit to see more.And it won t be much longer before we do—Samurai Jack returns March 11.
