If you were patient enough to sit through the final credits of Afro Samurai you'd have discovered that there's more episodic content planned for the anime hack 'n slash game.
Gamecyte has a few interesting tidbits on the DLC after to speaking to the TV Screenwriter Pete Saji who suggested that there's multiple directions that the series could go, including bringing Afro into a futuristic or modern day setting.
"What intrigued me about the Afro Samurai world," said Saji, "is that you don't really know what year it is. There are elements of feudal Japan, but people have cell phones... it allows a lot of room for creativity."
"If you had to be anywhere, it would almost be cooler if you had a modern-day setting with these feudal Japanese elements,"
Though Saji didn't go into specific detail, he did reveal that the new episode will feature an entirely new plot.
"It's a new sort of Afro Samurai experience, with all of the downloadable episodes." he told Gamecyte. "It doesn't pick up where anything left off."
There's no word as yet when the new episode will be released.

The Afro Samurai Show was crazy. Will this content be for the game or will it be the show?

Nifty. I want afro samurai but... I'm not willing to slap down the $70+tax they want for it currently.

How about some Trophies for the game? It's 09 already and this game was released without Trophies. It's not right.

if youre an afro fan get the game, it wont disappoint you. i love, i think its cool as heck. the only downside is the left to right camera is backwards, and sometimes like ninja gaiden you have to reset the camera, these are minor issues and they dont distract from how fun the game is, go get it people, support this game, and it will have dlc? come on guys, its a purchaser, support this company for making a good game about a character we care about.

It was barely decent, at best...Ninja Ninja does little more than aggravate you, the game itself is very glitchy, some of the moves aren't elaborated clearly enough, it gets a little boring from time to time, the only boss fight worthy of bein' a boss fight is when you fight Brother Six while he has the rocket launcher, the moves are uninventive, the platforming aspect is severely flawed/sketchy...the list goes on...I took it back to Gamestop after beating it on day two...
...I don't think extra episodic content can save this abomination...just my opinion, tho...
