Way of the Samurai 4 out now on GOG

I know that lots of you have been asking about a possible GOG release for Way of the Samurai 4, so I’m very pleased to be able to tell you that the Japanese action game and prestigious ‘Famitsu Gold Award’ winner, Way of the Samurai 4 is out now on GOG priced at $24.99 with an amazing 40% launch discount meaning the price will be reduced to $14.99 for the first week on sale.

We will also be offering a DLC patch on GOG containing the following DLC:

  • Where are they now?
  • Ryoma Sakamoto
  • Shinsengumi Set

This is available for $9.99 and as with the game itself will have its price reduced by 40% to $5.99 for its first week on sale/

Developed and published in Japan by Acquire and Spike Chunsoft, Way of the Samurai 4 is part of the million+ selling Way of the Samurai series.

The Way of the Samurai series is widely renowned for allowing players to make far-reaching decisions that can radically alter the course of the story and this, the fourth entry in this thrilling series and previously exclusive to the PS3, is no exception! Now all the sword-wielding action, adventure and drama of the Way of the Samurai series comes to PC for the very first time, continuing the series’ blend of customization, exploration, action gameplay and quirky humour.

Way of the Samurai 4 takes place in the humble port town of Amihama during the mid 19th Century, several years after the arrival of the “black ships” from the West ended Japan’s long history of cultural isolation. Amihama’s downtown area has slowly been converted to a “Little Britain,” complete with European-styled buildings, occupied by an influx of adventurous foreign settlers. Not everyone welcomes these new residents though, and three distinct factions with opposing ideals begin to take shape.

You must take on the role of a master-less samurai looking to establish yourself in this conflicted land of opportunity and uncertainty. It is up to you to decide which faction to support in an almighty conflict amongst the region’s three powers, and so direct the course of Japan’s history.

Will you aid the shogunate pro-government in their attempts to keep the peace and establish cordial relations with the foreign contingent?

Will you help the nationalistic isolationists in their attempts to exile this potential threat to the Japanese way of life?

Or will you ally with the foreigners directed by the British Navy in their attempts to establish silk trade and foster cultural exchange?

Who will you support? Who will you betray? Become the ultimate bastion of virtue or the ultimate disgrace to humanity, and do it however you'd like. The choice is entirely your own...

Come join the denizens of this conflicted harbour and enjoy all the series staples you've come to expect from Way of the Samurai:

• 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

What the reviewers had to say about the PS3 version

“Ridiculously over-the-top Japanese historical setting combined with samurai badassery and an open-world, Choose Your Own Adventure–style interface.” - EGM

“I can recommend this game to anyone who is a diehard fan of samurais and enjoys a good combat system wrapped around a unique way of telling a story.” - Darkstation

“...a unique, rewarding experience that to date, can't be found anywhere else.” – Destructoid

Mugen Souls to come to Steam!

I know lots of you have been looking forward to hearing which Japanese game we’re going to be bringing to Steam next, and I’m pleased to (finally :)) be able to tell you that we will be bringing Idea Factory & Compile Heart’s fantastic  JRPG, Mugen Souls, from PS3 to PC.

From the creators of the best selling Agarest series, Hyperdimension Neptunia & Fairy Fencer F…

There exists a small galaxy in the universe containing seven worlds, shimmering in seven colours... These worlds exist and act independently of one another. This has allowed them to develop and nurture rich, unique cultures. Then one day, a decree was issued... "I'm gonna make everything in each of these worlds bow to me!" – The Undisputed Goddess, Chou-Chou.

Mugen Souls features a free-roaming battle map, turn-based combat, and massive amounts of customization and growth to maximize the fun players can have with the game. 

Expansive worlds to explore: Travel freely on each world to explore and find treasures and items. Monsters are roaming about, so be cautious, or fight them head-on and make them your subservient peons!

Free-roaming style battle maps: Use Combo attacks to execute spectacular moves with your allies! Destroy Crystals on the battlefield to activate Hyper mode!

Moe Kill: Execute the Moe Kill technique to enslave enemies and turn them into items by exploiting their weaknesses!

Customization: Create a full cast of characters! Customizable body parts, facial expressions, and job classes!

Duel in Dual Audio: Experience the game in either Japanese or English audio.

PC Upgrades:  Featuring full mouse and keyboard support, gamepad support, Steam achievements, User Interface and major graphical enhancements!

You’ll be pleased to hear that the conversion process is coming along very nicely, so nicely in fact that invites have already been sent out to the beta testers, and we hope to release the game on Steam later this year! :)

As I’m sure some of you will want to know, after speaking to our partners at Steam we will be releasing a version based on the original European PS3 release.

That’s all from me.  I’ll be back next week, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our  Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight? You can also follow me on Twitter for a more personal take on all things Ghostlight.
