Way Of The Samurai 4 Chooses Path Of The PlayStation 3 [Update]

By Spencer . October 26, 2010 . 6:36pm

image Back in March, we said Way of the Samurai 4 was in development. Even though the game wasn’t announced in Japan, Acquire was searching for a Western publisher.

 

Famitsu has Way of the Samurai 4 in this week’s issue and its a PlayStation 3 game. Well, for now. Publisher Spike ported Way of the Samurai 3 to Xbox 360 four months after the PlayStation 3 release came out in Japan. Agetec and UFO Interactive worked together to release both versions in North America.

 

A scan for Way of the Samurai 4 has not been released at this time. We’ll update this post as soon as we find one.

 

Update: When you start Way of the Samurai 4 there are four kinds of heroes to choose from: young, young man, and middle aged. Once you create a hero it’s up to you to decide what happens to the three groups fighting over a harbor after foreigners arrived. Players can side with the shogunate, the anti-foreigner group or the outsiders with firearms, the Jet Jenkins.

 

Spike and Acquire are designing event scenes with even more flexibility. Famitsu shows a scene where the player is asked to explore a cave. You can follow someone in, talk, reject, or simply go home. If you leave the scene closes. A new feature shows the flow of events giving players hints on what to do.

    Yes, I am so incredibly happy to hear about this. I only hope WotS 4 goes even deeper with the relationship aspect of the game. Expanded customization WOULD ALSO BE A MASSIVE PLUS.

    I loved the open-ended nature of the first one, despite it’s flaws. Haven’t played the 2nd or 3rd. Color me interested but not excited until I learn more.

    But nevertheless, i am really excited about this game.
    I liked the third WotS too so this game definitely wont disappoint me.

    Cool, can’t wait to call my character Keiji Inafune and kiss up to these gaijin.

    Great news, hope it will recive a western release too. I’m always worried about that, as they aren’t exactly big sellers. But I think the past games are great gems, even if they do have some flaws.
