Check out some of the questions and answers highlighted in the PS Blog interview, but you can read the full article here if you want:
Did you think you would return to Samurai after the show ended?
Genndy: I thought I was done with Samurai. So, when the proposal for the game was proposed, I was not initially enthusiastic because of my past experience. But as things started to fall into place, I realized it was going to be very different and of a more unique quality. Then I couldn't wait until after the show.
What's it like to be able to not only see, but also fight with or against the characters you were writing for?
Genndy: It was great fun! I didn't know how many different characters were put in the game. Doing the TV episodes was really the same as every episode where I was fighting against everything I draw, but it was a much more fun experience somehow because it was an immediate action.
Who is your favorite character?
Genndy: Aku has always been my favorite. As usual, the villains have the most interesting personalities.
Did the game give you a chance to flesh things out or make changes that you didn't have time to work on on the show?
Genndy: No, through five seasons of the show, we really did everything we wanted to do, so it was more of a way to go back in time and enjoy Samurai on a nostalgic level and have the opportunity to be yourself.
