Description

Seven Samurai 20XX brings video gamers a Samurai combat game inspired by the classic The Seven Samurai, the Akira Kurosawa film considered by many to have set standards for modern day action movies. The title takes the film’s timeless tale of chivalry in the face of greed and aggression into a not-too-distant future. It is a time when humans have overcome a near apocalypse but still face a treacherous enemy; one employing an army of mechanical beasts and humanoids. Seven Samurai 20XX puts players in the role of the young Ronin Natoe. At first fighting the enemy alone as they begin laying siege to the human’s one and only city, Natoe soon finds himself the protector of the humans’ last hope, the Holy Child, and ultimately the leader of a band of warriors united to protect her against the invaders. Seven Samurai 20XX engages players with an experience that combines compelling storytelling, delivered through superb cinematic cut-scenes, with intense melee-style combat. Players will use a variety of ancient fighting styles in the game, employing an arsenal of moves and attacks that grow with their mastery of the samurai way.

  • As a proper homage, Seven Samurai 20XX was created with the full involvement of Kurosawa Production and its president Hisao Kurosawa, son of Akira. Mr. Kurosawa played an instrumental role in ensuring that his father’s vision was faithfully recreated as a video game.
  • Development of Seven Samurai 20XX involved contributions from world-renowned artists. Characters in the game were conceptualized by the infamous French comic artist Moebius, best known for his Blueberry comic strip and as designer for such visual film masterpieces as The Fifth Element and Tron. The game also boasts a cinematic score, with opening and ending music composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto, the world-famous music composer and winner of an Academy Award for the soundtrack for the film The Last Emperor.
