XSeed Unveils Way of the Samurai 4 is Coming Exclusively to PS3

200°
107w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has unveiled today that Way of the Samurai 4 is coming exclusively to the PS3 entertainment system with details below.

To quote: Say WotS?! You heard me right! Spike and Acquire's Way of the Samurai 4 is confirmed for release in North America on the PS3, and we at XSEED Games are pleased to be bringing it to you fully uncut and uncensored.

Torture chambers, naughty midnight missions in the dark and all the brutal slaughtering you can handle await in this riveting and 100% historically accurate (shhhh!) sandbox-style samurai period drama.

Admiral Perry has just opened Japan's borders to the British, allowing for a long-overdue globalization process to begin.

Unfortunately, one of the open ports happens to be a modest Japanese burg called Amihama, where a resistance group known as the "Disciples of Prajna" have taken up arms against the arriving foreigners and all who support them.

As a lone samurai who's just arrived amidst the chaos, it's up to you whether you want to join forces with the Prajna resistance, fight alongside the foreigners in the name of progress or take your stance somewhere between the two by supporting the local government's attempts to quell the violence (through any means possible).
