Character Customisation in Way of the Samurai 4

Hi everyone. With just under a week to go until Way of the Samurai 4 is released on Steam, I’m pleased to be able to tell you that Way of the Samurai 4 is now available for pre-purchase.  So, head to the Way of the Samurai 4 Steam Store page if you want to save a massive 40% on the standard price of $24.99!

While I’m on the subject of Way Of The Samurai 4, today I thought I’d talk about one of the features in the game that will allow you to express your creativity and that’s the Character Creator!  While it seems rather simple at first, the Character Creator is a rather powerful tool which allows you to create a huge variety of weird and wonderful characters. From the realistic:

to the somewhat less realistic:

The Standard options are of course all there, and the user has the ability set the character’s clothing, skin colour, face, hair and gender (to do this simply select a male or female character, or face before making further customisations.)

But it is the accessories that allow you to have the most fun as you’re able to resize and reposition every single one of the many accessories available to you, exactly as you wish.

And it’s this tool that has allowed us to create some of my favourite oddities in the office :)  Some of these characters have been created just by repositioning a few key items

Other’s have required some more elaborate work

Of course the characters you create show up in all the parts of the game, from the free roaming and combat sections:

to the romance scenes:

and even the cutscenes:

And yes, he does indeed look just like you’d expect a ronin to look. :)

Many of these options are locked at the beginning of the game, but as you play through the story you’ll slowly gain access to them all.

While it may seem a shame to change away from your favourite creations, fear not as you will see your past characters wandering the streets of Amihama.  These men & women will always be up for a fight, so feel free to test your current characters skills against them!

That’s all from me this week, but before I go, I thought I’d share a link to an ‘alternative’ trailer for the game

Enjoy! :)
