The Banner Saga publisher Versus Evil revealed that it is publishing a follow-up to Namco Bandai's 2007 PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 action game Afro Samurai for next-gen consoles and PC platforms.
Afro Samurai's sequel is developed by Redacted Studios, a developer founded by former Namco Bandai senior producer David Robinson. Polygon reports that Robinson worked on the first Afro Samurai while at Namco Bandai, and retained the rights to produce additional games in the series after his departure.
Versus Evil notes that its Afro Samurai sequel will feature a new storyline, new playable characters, and improvements on the original game's dismemberment mechanics.
