Leading video games publisher Rising Star Games has today announced that Gamebridge’s Way of the Samurai 3, an open world action RPG, will arrive on 12th March for Microsoft’s Xbox 360.
Developed by Acquire, Way of the Samurai 3 shows gamers the true consequence of their actions, with each decision further influencing the way the game pans out. Playing as a samurai during the tumultuous time of the Sengoku era, gamers can join one of two warring factions, side with the neutral villagers, or ignore all and create their own path.
In addition to familiar systems new ones add depth to gameplay including, Sudden Battle that allows players to draw swords, Original Blade Creation where players can choose from over 200 different parts and materials to create a wholly original sword, and Companion that allows players to select a woman to set up home with.
“We’re delighted to announce the release of Gamebridge’s Way of the Samurai 3,” says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. “The ultimate choose your own adventure game, no game has used the butterfly effect to such extremes as in this one.”
Way of the Samurai 3 launches on 12th March for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with two limited edition digital bonus items; a strategy guide, detailing an array of hints and tips, and a stunning artbook.
