    Same could be said of the final season.

    Samurai Jack is cool, I'm okay with him getting a game.

    I'll grab it. It'll get bonus points from me if it also adds the stuff from the comics.

    Maybe this game will give the show a proper ending (you know, because the ending we got kind of sucked.)

    That I definitely agree with. I always hated that Ashi got paradoxed out of existence, making that supposed happy ending all for nothing.

    They officially confirmed via Twitter that the game is canon to the show.

    The game is out now.

    It slightly retcons the finale. When Jack and Ashi are traveling back to the past, Aku let’s out one last attack that interrupts them and sends Jack on a journey through his greatest hits.

    Sounds like the game isn't GOTY material but is still worth playing if you're a fan and don't mind simple action adventure.

    IGN’s review said that the gameplay is charmingly simple like an old relic from the PS2/GameCube/Xbox era. And that’s kinda appealing to me. I have lots of fond memories of all those kind of licensed games. Billy and Mandy, TMNT 2003, Madagascar.

    I like it, but it wasn't really necessary becusce there are a few other characters that deserved better.

    One has to wonder if that was the original plan for ending Season 5 before they decided Jack should be lonely.

    And now they're putting it in the game saying, "Here you go, fans."

    Saw it on Tumblr. That fixed my one major gripe with the finale so I’m definitely happy
