Afro Samurai Trailer Makes Surprise Appearance At DICE

Like Afro Samurai? Excited about the Namco Bandai console game of the same name? Buddy, have we got the ghetto captured, shaky-cam video for you. During Roger Hector's DICE presentation today, the VP of Development at Namco Bandai Games showed off the first trailer for the game, which looks to stay true to the series' trademark art style. Hector showed off work in progress versions of Afro, in 2D and 3D form, a transition the character seemed to make with ease. Hopefully, we'll get a direct feed version of the above clip soon and put this whole bush league video capture job behind us.

The story is too old to be commented.

Kind of looks like the Afro Samruai game that was announced for the 360 too. Looks hot.

The contributor and the approvers ignored it almost like they did on purpose.

The 2007 GOTY awards had footage and dev interviews.

Ahhh.... how sweet would it be if they throw in the complete animated series in HD on the same Blu-Ray. Id buy it just for that!!

Was just thinking how cool it would be to have the series on XBL.

It'll be back!

As for this game, something looks funny about it. It looks like 360 next gen, and the art style is different than in the show. Namely it's too bright, where as the series was dark as ever (both colouring and in them.)

As well it pacing of what they showed was a little slow in comparison as to how it's animated. Need a lot of work.
