Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked Ships
Leading video games publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America announced today that the highly anticipated Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked for the PlayStation 2 has shipped to retail stores. This unique title based on the hit series airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim introduces players to the untrammeled strength of a samurai sword against a backdrop of righteous hip-hop beats. With an original storyline, Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked promises to take players on a new adventure with a completely different approach to samurai swordplay.
“With Samurai Champloo, we have created an inimitable fighting experience that lets players execute their preferred combo moves depending on the background tracks that they choose,” said Yoshi Niki, business unit director from NAMCO BANDAI Games of America. “By staying true to creator Shinichiro Watanabe’s vision, we have crafted a game that truly integrates the code of the samurai and hip-hop culture.”
