Dororo announced

Sega announces that it will release a 3D samurai action game based on a classic manga by Osamu Tezuka.


Blood Will Tell

Sega has today released a list of the 20 games that it's planning to show at E3 next month, 10 of which hadn't been announced previously. One such game is known by the working title of Dororo, and it is currently in development for the PlayStation 2. The game, which is based on a classic manga by Osamu Tezuka, will see players assuming the role of a troubled samurai named Hyakkimaru who is on a quest to uncover his past and regain his humanity. As Hyakkimaru, players will be able to do battle with numerous weapons, including blades embedded in the character's arms, a bazooka hidden in his leg, or others that can be found as they progress through the game.

We'll bring you more information on Dororo, which has not yet been concept-approved by Sony Computer Entertainment America, when we report live from E3 on May 14-16.
