Big 'fro, big sword, big action. In a few words, that's the heart of Namco's upcoming Afro Samurai, an action game based on the cartoon series that aired on Spike TV in 2007. The pithy description doesn't nearly capture the series' heart, which is all about a son's love for his father, revenge, and -- yes -- big, big action. The developers at Namco are taking on the considerable task of bringing that huge action and the endless swordplay of the Afro Samurai series (which began as a manga created by Takashi Okazaki in 1999) to an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 near you while maintaining the heart and soul for which the series is known. Based on what GameSpot have seen of the game so far, the developers seem to be well on track toward achieving that goal.
