has announced today that Way of The Samurai 4 is out on PSN beginning today with a new video trailer below.
To quote: Last time , my colleague Tom introduced you guys to our upcoming release (out today!), Way of the Samurai 4.
He expounded on the back story, the sandbox nature of its gameplay, and a bit of the silliness you will encounter if you take up arms in Amihama.
He tried to warn you. I'm just going to tell you. This game is crazy. Like, if you punch people, eggs fall out crazy.
Way of the Samurai 4 drops players into a period drama populated by Edo-era Japanese citizens, trade-hungry foreigners and hundreds of crates flaunting their breakability. As a masterless samurai, you're free to aid whichever faction vying for dominance in Amihama that you like.
You can choose to support the local government (the Shogunate forces), the isolationists movement (the Prajna), or the diminutive, sweets-obsessed diplomatic envoy from the British. Or you can do what I did and just run around killing everybody.
Whether or not you play by the rules is up to you. With ten endings and a ton of branching story potentials, I highly recommend just trying everything. Everything.
