A new Afro Samurai demo just ninjaed samuraied its way onto the Xbox Live Marketplace, bringing with it the potty-mouthed anime shenanigans the star vehicle is known for. Listed at 454MB, the demo comes packed with a brief video introduction (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) and a relatively small sampl...

Namco Bandai has reportedly swiped the hockey mask out from under Splatterhouse developer BottleRocket Entertainment, giving the nearly-finished project to the publisher's internal Afro Samurai team instead. Sources close to the company say that Namco officials reclaimed all dev kits and Splatterh...

Namco Bandai, er ... we mean Surge rented out the Geisha House in Hollywood last night in order to throw a party for the launch of Afro Samurai, and Joystiq tagged along to check things out. The best thing about the night? Plenty of stations to play the game on both PS3s and Xbox 360s. Sadly, the ...

If you're anything like us, your enjoyment of anything Afro Samurai instantly begins with the mention of Samuel L. Jackson. Let's face it people, SLJ is all kinds of awesome and his voice work in Afro Samurai is top notch. Watch this slow motion in game footage which stars the vocal work of ...

This week on the Xbox 360, you have a choice. You can choose between either Afro Samurai or MLB Front Office Manager. That's it. Pick one. You're done. Then again, you could make the third choice. You could choose to buy nothing at all. That's probably the most zen thing to do. Of course, you coul...

Take note, game publishers: There are two ways to take the featured slot on our weekly release list. 1. Be a hotly anticipated game or 2. Have your top competition be MLB Front Office Manager. Yes, Afro Samurai may have taken the road less traveled, but it's hard to argue with the results. Also, ...

Don't let the opening's falling teddy bears fools you, this latest Afro Samurai trailer is anything but cute or cuddly. It's more sharp, violent and musically beatbox'ified. Kinda a mix of Afro Samurai comic book art, thumping beats, bloody splatter, slow motion and big afro. Maybe watching ...

Earlier this afternoon, Namco-Bandai made an announcement regarding the release date for their anime adapted Afro Samurai game-o-samurai-stuff. And even though a samurai is no ninja, Afro Samurai will be ninja sneaking into retailers early next year. January 27th to be ninja-exact. Hopefully, by the...

There are three things in this world for which we possess an unbridled, white-hot love: The warriors of feudal Japan, outrageously large disco hairstyles, and Samuel L. Jackson. As you can imagine, we've been fans of Afro Samurai since it made its American debut on SpikeTV in 2007 -- though w...

There's a new trailer out for the Namco brawler Afro Samurai and, to be honest, it looks pretty hot. The trailer introduces gamers to many of the series' main characters, all of whom will apparently be voiced by the original voice actors for the television show, which means we'll be treated t...

Most likely, my reaction to Afro Samurai is all wrong. The upcoming PS3/360 game from Namco Bandai translates Spike TV's anime series into a video game. After an eyes-on demo of the game, I walked away ... hungry. Why's that? Afro Samurai's gruesome rendering of the frightening power of a sword ha...

Click for high-resolution image. Yes, new Afro Samurai images slice into our gallery ... and apparently into the poor fellow in the picture above. Poor guy; he is now nothing more than a pile of meat -- courtesy of our gaijin warrior friend Samuel L. Jackson Afro. These new screenshots are quite ...

"Hip hop infused action adventure" news now, with Namco Bandai announcing a Fall 2008 release window for Afro Samurai, a video game adaptation of the popular animated series starring Mr. Samuel L. Jackson. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game follows the acrobatic Afro as he seeks revenge for ...

A new gameplay trailer for Afro Samurai has arrived by way of the Namco Bandai Editor's Day 08. As far as we're concerned, the trailer spends far too much time showing off the game's locales and characters and not nearly enough time showing Afro hacking his enemies to bits. The trailer is rat...

Click for high-resolution image. Spike TV's original anime featuring Samuel L. Jackson is heading over to PS3, as revealed in a Namco Bandai event today. The Afro Samurai game, scheduled for a Fall release later this year, promises to bring an "elegant violence" with stylish sword fighting. Intere...

Afro Samurai (possibly the most descriptive title ever devised) is looking good. GameSpot recently got to take an extended look at the game (based on the anime series of the same name) and came away impressed. The game is complete with all the things that fans of the show have come to expect, name...

After the release of the Naruto game, did you just expect the graphical style of the game to be dead outside of DBZ fighters? We here at X3F certainly didn't, which is why we're not surprised at the recent announcement that there will be an Afro Samurai game. Which is great because the show's plot ...
