Any gamers who crave some Eastern-style Samurai action should be delighted with the news that Way of the Samurai 4 is on the way from XSEED games. Already confirmed for European release, today marks the first time the game has also been lined up for launch in North America.
No date for this one as yet, but it will offer full sandbox style gameplay and the ability to take on various missions and kit your character out in the most badass Samurai getup imaginable and intimidate your foes with your fearsome demeanor. Or just put on a dress if you should prefer, hey we wont judge you.
Loosely based around the real historical event of Japan opening its borders up to trade with the West, Way of the Samurai 4 will allow you to team up with the foreigners, support the local anti-British resistance group, or take a stance somewhere in between.
