This January players will take the role of Afro the sober, silent samurai and titular character in the popular anime series. For those who aren't fans, Afro Samurai follows the adventures of Afro, the son of a slain samurai warrior who was killed by a gunman named Justice (ironic, right?), on his quest to avenge his father's murder.
Trained from childhood in the way of the sword, Afro is likely the most deadly swordsman in all of feudal Japan (which includes robotic clones for some reason) as is evidenced by his possession of the title/headband of Number Two. The 2007 series (and the upcoming game) focuses on his quest to kill Justice and claim the title of Number One, which belonged to his father.
