TGH Writes: "NIS America is proud to announce that they will be the publisher for Way of the Samurai 4.The original publisher was going to be Xseed games, but now NISA will bring Way of the Samurai 4 to North America."
wait, so are we getting a full retail copy this time?
Geh. I wonder what this means for us. Originally it was supposed to be a PSN title available... this July, I think. So... a delay? Not cool. Oh well, at least we're getting it, in spite of WotS' niche nature. Seems kind of weird to think that such a niche game could get released overseas so frequently like this, whereas the far more popular Yakuza series has a (better) game set in the same era with, arguably, more demand for an overseas translation that will never be localized.
While I like the WotS games, I'd buy Kenzan day one if they brought it West. I don't care if it is a 4 year old game.
I think this means that we're getting a physical copy. I mean, NISA is usually fond of those. As for Yakuza, Acquire is usually quite open for localizations, unlike SEGA, which either localizes their own shit or it doesn't see an overseas release (usually).
Sweeeeet. Love this series.
I'm actually looking forward to this. I really enjoyed number 3, even though it looked awful.
