Usagi Yojimbo, the ronin rabbit who has slashed his way into comics lore, has not appeared in a game in over 25 years… until now.
HappyGiant, in association with Dark Horse Comics, has released their side-scrolling 2D slasher game for the iPhone and iPad. The game which takes its style from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle arcade games is now available in the apple store.
The game is not available for Android devices just yet but will see be able to play very soon.
“It’s been far too long since the last Usagi game, and I am so excited to be working with HappyGiant to bring Usagi and his friends back to these new platforms,” said Stan Sakai creator of Yojimbo, “The game turned out great!”
In conjunction with the games release, Dark Horse Comics is announcing the first new Usagi Yojimbo collection after a year hiatus working on 47 Ronin. The first new book will be Usagi Yojimbo: A Town Called Hell, which will see release on July 17.
