Way of the Samurai 3 to be released 23rd March!

Hi everyone.

It doesn’t seem that long ago since we announced the upcoming PC release of Way of the Samurai 3. Well, now I’m happy to tell you that we’ll be releasing Way of the Samurai 3 for Steam on 23rd March 2016, priced at just $19.99. Not only that, but we’ll be offering a 20% launch discount until the 30th March!

I’m relieved to say that the porting process has gone very smoothly, thanks of course to some very hard work from our lead programmer, but I’d also like to say a massive thank you to all the beta testers who’ve been a massive help getting the game ready for release so quickly.  Thank you all! :)

By the way, the 20% discount will also apply to the DLC available at launch, when we will be offering the following DLC packs:

Way of the Samurai 3 - Accessory Set

This pack includes a comprehensive 27 exclusive accessories to create even more unique and outlandish characters.

Way of the Samurai 3 - Head and Outfit Set

Including 1 exclusive Head and 10 exclusive outfits will help you create truly unique characters.

Way of the Samurai 3 - Weapon Set

This set has a massive 40 exclusive weapon parts to create 9 unique swords and the ‘Arquebus’ spear.


For this new version we’ve added full mouse/keyboard and gamepad support, Steam achievements and a number of other user interface changes providing PC gamers with the best version of Way of the Samurai 3 to date.  Cloud Saves are also supported as are Steam trading cards, backgrounds and icons.

Honour, sacrifice, betrayal… Your choices make you who you are. How will history remember you?

Jump into the sandals of a mysterious lone samurai during Japan’s turbulent Sengoku era, in one of the most atmospheric action RPGs ever created.

Explore the villages, body-strewn battlefields, bandit fortresses, immense castles and local town of Amana, in an open world bustling with a rich cast of colourful characters that you can help, ignore or victimise.

Choose your friends and enemies carefully in a game where every decision has far-reaching consequences, and where finishing the game is just the beginning of your journey…

  • 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.
  • The Pen Can Be Mightier Than the Sword - Fight your enemies by force or take the diplomatic route, using subtle gestures like the unsheathing of your sword or kowtowing. Featuring an extensive dialogue tree, combo system and much, much more!
