Atari has picked up Afro Samurai from Namco Bandai and plans to unleash it here in 2009.

This, you may remember, is the Xbox 360 and PS3 adaptation of the bloody anime starring Samuel L. Jackson. He plays Afro, a samurai on a journey of cel-shaded revenge for his father's death.

All will be faithfully recreated on console, we're told, from engaging combat to dismemberment and an original hip hop score by The RZA of Wu-Tang Clan fame.

Check out our Afro Samurai gamepage for a couple of promising trailers.
