Acquire is developing the next installment in the Way of the Samurai series, currently only scheduled for release in Japan this fall, featuring over 100 weapons for you to wield in defense of the poor, lonely, while fending off rivaling samurai clans.

The consequences of your actions will determine your fate. Choose to fight along side good or evil during the tumulous time of the Sengoku era and carve your name into history. Become a hero or become infamous, the choice is yours.

Take the role of a samurai and choose your own path, blazing a trail of honor, loyalty and respect or one of villainy, corruption and greed. The canonical series, best known for its high level of freedom and play style is back, with improved features, graphics and new game play mechanics sure to please fans of this enduring series.

Key Features:

  • The Butterfly Effect – With over 15 different endings, every action you take will cause a change of events to occur, allowing for multiple outcomes and replay-ability. Every action has a reaction and the following consequences open up new paths to explore.
  • Weapon Customization and Abilities – Craft your own unique weapons from over 200 different parts and materials, creating the ultimate weapon that suits your taste and fighting style. Create lethal blades, spears, pole axes and more while discovering new abilities and skills with increased use. Become a master of one or of many!
  • Reward System and Samurai Rating – Performing different feats will reward a player with Samurai Points and a Title, which in turn will unlock new features and characters within the game. Fight honorably in the way of the samurai, live your life as a bandit or strive to uphold the government. These choices will net different points and values, encouraging multiple play throughs to unlock all features and content.
  • The Pen Can Be Mightier Than The Sword – Fight your opposition with force or take the diplomatic route, using subtle gestures like the unsheathing of your sword. With extensive dialogue tree, weapons combo systems and more, this hybrid title delivers on multiple fronts.

Way of the Samurai 3 is scheduled for release in Oct. 2009 on PS3/X360 for $49.99.
