The Legend of Samurai Jack has just landed on the PS4

You read that right. I was just browsing through YouTube, and suddenly my eye caught a familiar face. It was a face that I had last seen over a decade ago. I thought it may just be a clip of some episode, but it was only after I read the title that I realized what it truly was. 


If you have lived for as long as I have, I have faith that you know who or what Samurai Jack is. It was one of the most watched series of cartoon on Cartoon Network back in the day. For those who may be a bit younger, here is a quick lesson:

“Samurai Jack is a fierce warrior who is thrown into the future by an evil character named Aku. The two engage in a never-ending series of battle spread across the cosmos.” 

Samurai Jack was known as one of the most action-packed cartoons. Jack himself, the main protagonist, is a sword-wielding Samurai, hell bent to eliminate Aku. Aku, on the other hand, is a despicable but hilarious character who is hell bent on ensuring Samurai Jack never makes it back to his time. Why? Well, let’s not spoil that for those who may not have seen this cartoon. 

Now, we gamers are in for a treat, because Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time has just landed on the PS4 on the 21st of August, 2020.
Oh, I should probably mention the next bit in bold letters (feeling a bit smug actually).

Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is a PS4 Exclusive. Sorry Xbox fans, but you have yet another reason to consider making the jump. 

The teaser trailer looked extremely promising. The gameplay does feel like a mix of Spyro Reignited, Medieval and Borderlands series. It is smooth, has a good frame rate, and it definitely seems to have all that action we have so dearly missed. 

Furthermore, the trailer shows that Scottish bloke, whom Jack fights at first in the episode of the never-ending bridge, the blue dog from the dog planet (who speaks without moving his lips), and some other iconic, fan-favorite characters back in action.

There is so much to look forward to, and what a way its turning out to be to mark the end of an era. PS4 started with a bang and certainly intends to end with one too. I cannot wait to finish the download and play this game. (You can too, just buy a gift-card from )
