Banzai! XSEED releasing Way of the Samurai 4 on August 21


Fans of Acquire, XSEED, and awkward-but-compelling Japanese can rejoice, because Way of the Samurai 4 has a release date! And it's soon, too. The world of hilariously exaggerated animations, sword collecting, choice and consequence, and generally looking and acting silly in samurai-era Japan will be available to North American PS3 owners at the end of the month, on August 21st.

The bad news? Way of the Samurai 4 is a digital-only release, and will need to be bought and downloaded via the PlayStation Network Store, leaving folks with no space on their PS3 hard drives or a hatred for dowloadable games out in the cold. Pro-physical users could opt to import the European release to get a disc, but they'll have to wait until that version is released this October.

Personally, I won't be deterred. I've a weakness for the Way of the Samurai games, and besides, as a longtime PC gamer I'm no stranger to fat-ass downloads. Just ask my Steam copy of Max Payne 3! How about you?
