Posted on March 7, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Ghostlight games will be bringing developer Aquire’s 2008 action/adventure game Way of the Samurai 3 to Windows PC later this year. Set in feudal japan, players control a nameless custom ronin who chooses to help the inhabitants of Amana overthrow the tyrannical Fujimori clan.

This series is well known for its branching pathways and multiple endings, since the player has a direct role in the game’s plot the choices they make affect the outcome of the narrative. After completing the main story Ronin who want another shot at saving Amana can enter a new game+ mode, keeping all of the previously earned items while receiving a unique title for their accomplishments.

Way of the Samurai 3 has had a number of different publishers – Spike for the JPN release, Agetec for the original North American PS3 release and now Ghostlight for the Windows PC Port.

Here are just a few of the game’s features that Ghostlight highlighted in a recent press release about the game:

  • The Butterfly Effect – More than 20 different endings. Your every action, no matter how subtle or ludicrous, could set in motion a huge variety of events, allowing for huge replayability. Explore new narrative paths, reveal new allies… and enemies!
  • Huge Customization – Craft your own unique weapons from over 200 different parts. Create the ultimate unbreakable weapon to suit your preferred fighting style. Forge lethal swords, spears, pole axes and more outlandish weaponry and discover hundreds of new abilities as you become a true master of each weapon!
  • Reward System and Samurai Rating – Your actions and conduct will reward you with Samurai Points and Titles, all of which unlock new game features, customisation options, outfits and accessories. Live as an honourable samurai, wallow in the low life of a bandit or strike your own path! Your choices lead to new endings, strange followers and other unexpected outcomes.
