On This Day In Gaming History!: March 12th, 2018

Seven Samurai 20XX was a PlayStation 2 game released by Sammy Studios in North America on March 12th, 2004. Its story and concept are based upon Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 movie Seven Samurai.

Seven Samurai 20XX is a re-telling of Seven Samurai in a futuristic setting. It takes various liberties with the original story to better suit the post setting and introduces anime and modern styled designs. Seven Samurai 20XX is a hack and slash video game, as the protagonist of the game is faced with the task of destroying overwhelming hordes of enemies with his swords.


The game was criticized for its poor pacing, lack of voice acting, and linear gameplay with a lack of sufficient depth. GameSpot complained the combat system too direct, only requiring the player to use the square button to defeat enemies and that the combo system was unnecessary for progression.
