Xseed Games is bringing Way of the Samurai 4, released by Spike last March in Japan, to North America this summer, exclusively via PlayStation Network.
“Way of the Samurai 4 is the latest installment of a prized series that we know will be well-received by fans here,” said Ken Berry, Director of Publishing at Xseed Games. “In this new game, much more will be told of the epic battles fought in Japan in a way that further evolves the series, including branching storylines, multiple endings, a unique online element, as well as some random silliness and craziness that players have come to expect of the brand.”
Set in mid-19th century Japan, after isolation ended, players take on the role of a “master-less samurai” looking to make a name for himself. Players will create their own character of youth, young, or middle-aged, and jump into a power struggle between three factions.
Europeans: Rising Star Games confirmed back in January it would localize Way of the Samurai 4 for PAL territories. It’s due for release this year.
