How Demon’s Souls Inspired Way Of The Samurai 4 And Other Development Stories

Siliconera- Each game in Spike Chunsoft’s Way of the Samurai evolves with new (usually wacky) ideas. Way of the Samurai 4 comes out on Tuesday, care of Xseed, and has a new mechanic that lets player’s carry their character’s achievements over when they restart the game. The Proof of Life system is kind of like "New Game +" weaved into the story. Way of the Samurai 4 also has wandering samurai who travel into other players games, a feature Tetsushi Saito, Localization Director at Acquire, explains was inspired by Demon’s Souls.

Saito also explains how the fishing mini-game got into Way of the Samurai 4 and tells us about crazy ideas that they weren’t able to add to the game. (Demon's Souls, PS3, Tetsushi Saito, Way of the Samurai 4)
