Ghostlight Bringing Way of the Samurai 4 To Steam

By   /   Sep 9, 2014

Publisher Ghostlight Games has reached an agreement with Spike Chunsoft and Acquire to bring their game, Way of the Samurai 4, to PC through Steam later this year.

Ghostlight is a standard when it comes to localization efforts, though it admits that its former projects were mostly Japanese roleplaying games (RPG), where this title is not. In the past, the company has been on the forefront to bring games to Western audiences for PSP and 3DS, as well as porting the Agarest titles to PC.

Way of the Samurai 4 is more of an open world action title, like Grand Theft Auto or Sleeping Dogs in layman’s terms, but in a more historically ancient setting.

Players embody a no-name samurai, who will have to make their presence known throughout the land and choose between an alliance set from three different factions, namely the shogunate, the nationalists or the foreign powers.

In the game, you’ll have five days to decide your fate and your allegiance, while completing map objectives. Depending on your choices, you’ll be able to unlock nearly a dozen different endings, with some elements carrying over for replay value.

Characters can be customized, equipment can be upgraded and combat not only features the known sword weapons, but also involve firearms. Given the foreign influence, it’s even possible to learn English and recruit others with your silver tongue.

Partner Acquire is sort of a specialist when it comes to games with themes like Way of the Samurai 4. They’re also responsible for both the Tenchu and Shinobido series.
