Versus Evil and Redacted Studios have announced the release date of Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma.

The game will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC from September 22, 2015, with an Xbox One release to follow at a later date via ID@Xbox.

Afro Samurai 2 will be delivered in three separate volumes, each with its own new story arch, characters, and combat styles. A bundle of all three volumes will be available on PC and PS4 at launch for $34.99, with PlayStation Plus subscribers being offered a 30% discount. The volumes can also be purchased separately as they become available for $14.99 each.

“A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into getting Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma to this launch,” said Steve Escalante, GM of Versus Evil. “The developer, Redacted Studios, has been dreaming of launching this game, the way you are going to play it and experience it over the course of several volumes.  It is a hip-hop opera that folds in a tragic family story with action-packed samurai action and a soundtrack from some amazing indie hip-hop artists.  We can’t wait for the fans to get to experience the next phase in Afro Samurai action.”
