One of this year's sleeper hits has been Afterlight Collective's Samurai Blitz [Free]. Hey that rhymes! Arriving back in July, Samurai Blitz accomplished the difficult task of making an endless runner feel fresh with its super fun mechanics and super gorgeous visuals. We loved it in our review, but if there was any sort of negative to lob towards Samurai Blitz it's that it was maybe a bit too simplistic. Well, in August we learned of Afterlight's plans to expand on Samurai Blitz in a number of ways with a massive version 2.0 update. Today we have a glimpse of all this new stuff in action in this brand new trailer.
As you can see, pets are one of the major additions to Samurai Blitz, and I'm more than a little stoked to be hacking and slashing away at with a panda by my side. In addition to all the different pets, there's also a ton of new gear to unlock, the various katanas in the game now have special attributes, there's achievements to chase, and so much more. I'm psyched to see Samurai Blitz continue to evolve, and if you haven't checked it out yet yourself you really need to get on that. The big version 2.0 update will arrive this week on October 1st.
