Way of the Samurai 4 heading to US PS3s

Xseed has confirmed via the PlayStation Blog that it’s bringing Way of the Samurai 4 over to North America as a PS3 exclusive.

The fourth entry in the cult series sets an interesting scene; picturing a Japan on the brink of globalization as the country opens its borders to the British. Players can either join forces with the anti-foreign resistance or fight against it. Either or that or hang somewhere in the middle, trying to stop the conflict.

The usual distractions will be in place too: casinos, customization and side quests will all feature as normal.

A release date and pricing aren’t available right now, but it’s always good to see the series head over to a less familiar audience.
