Way of the Samurai 4 coming to North America

Available on PlayStation Network this summer.

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.
