Most games that get simultaneous releases for PlayStation3 and Vita tend to be the same when it comes to story and gameplay, but it isn’t the case for Spike Chunsoft’s recently announced Samurai action games. The official website tells us a little more.

 

The stories of Patriot of Ukiyo for PlayStation 3 and Ronin of Ukiyo on PlayStation Vita have different stories based on famous Japanese historic figures in alternate stories.

 

In Patriot of Ukiyo, you’ll play as an amnesiac Sakamoto Ryoma, that will tell a story as to how and why his memories got lost, why Japan is becoming a secluded nation. The story will share events from historic cases that really happened, but with different interpretations.
