Japanese samurai action game Way of the Samurai 4 will be availableon July 23, Western publisher Ghostlight has announced. The game will be sold for a 40% pre-order discount up until July 16, at which point it'll be priced at $24.99.
Way of the Samurai 4 was originally developed by Acquire and Spike Chunsoft , and is the latest in a long-running cult series that lets players run around a 19th century Japanese village, fighting bandits, completing quests, and generally being a roaming ronin badass. There's a focus on decision-making, as the player is able to support or hinder a number of factions.
This is the first time that the series has made it to the PC. Way of the Samurai 4 was originally released back, and wasn't one of the best-received titles in the history of the franchise. Still, it's certainly got a unique style and a quirky sense of humour.
Here's what you can expect when the game launches later this month:
• Branching storylines with multiple endings
• Dynamic combat system
• Vast array of melee and gunpowder weaponry
• Extensive character customization
• Key event decision making
• Sword collecting
• Original Japanese voiceover with English subtitles
• Bonus downloadable content
