Versus Evil has announced that a sequel to 2009’s Afro Samurai is in development over at Redacted Studios for PC and “next-gen consoles.”

Redacted founder David Robinson worked on the first game at Namco Bandai that released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (pictured above), and now heads a team of 17 who are working on the sequel.

“This upcoming third person action adventure includes an original storyline, new playable characters, and improved special moves and combos which firmly establishes the franchise as the undisputed leader in dynamic dismemberment,” the publisher said.

For those that are unaware, Afro Samurai started life as a manga back in 1999, before being made into an anime in 2007. Samuel L. Jackson voiced the lead character in the anime.
