'Samurai Western' (PS2) Hacks Its Way To Stores

by Rainier on June 7, 2005 @ 8:47 a.m. PDT

In Samurai Western, you assume the role of a young samurai named Kiryu Goujiro, who's traveled to the US all the way from Japan to find his older brother. Goujiro sticks to his bushido code of honor and his belief that the Japanese sword is the strongest weapon in the world, so he seems to fight only with his sword throughout the game. Since Goujiro's outnumbered by gunmen who can pepper him with bullets from yards away, it's a good thing he has a lot of talent with his sword.

Featuring improved graphics and a multitude of gameplay additions such as a First Person Mode, an "Insane" difficulty level, and "Bushido Sense", Samurai Western will tar and feather all but the most experienced gamers!

It's the American West during the 1800's. The days of pioneers and the Gold Rush are ending, and a transcontinental railway is in place. One day, a lone stranger arrives in a tiny, windswept desert town...

His long hair is drawn back in a topknot and he wears strange foreign clothes. A mysterious-looking blade that is neither a knife nor a saber hangs from his belt. This mysterious stranger is certainly no gunman, and he ain't no indian...

His name is Gojiro Kiryu, and he's bringing justice back to the Old West.

Samurai Western Key Features:

  • Slash your way through 16 different missions!
  • "Bushido Sense" allows you to dodge and deflect bullets with superhuman skill!
  • Customize your hero by choosing between 10 different stances each with their own special attacks and powers!
  • Over 100 unlockables including over 25 playable characters, 70 accessories and 20 weapons!
  • Be a Samurai or a Gunman! Unique 2 player mode allows you to play as both!

Samurai Western has been rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB and has an MSRP of $39.99.
