Beat Afro Samurai? Did you watch the credits roll? Closely? Peter Saji was credited in them for writing a downloadable episode. Gamecyte spoke to Saji who explained he had creative freedom to pen multiple episodes. That’s right multiple downloadable episodes.
Saji notes the downloadable episodes are not a continuation of the story in Afro Samurai and take place in an alternate timeline. You’ll still see Afro and Ninja Ninja in them. In the interview Saji also discusses how Afro Samurai blurs feudal Japan with modern day technology. Is his plan to throw Afro in an arena with cybernetic samurai from the future?
