The lights are on
The open-world samurai game is coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 in North America courtesy of publisher Xseed. This is good news for fans, considering that the localization and release of the series' latest entry was up in the air.
According to an entry on the PlayStation blog, the sandbox-style game puts players in control of a samurai in Japan just as the country is seeing an influx of foreigners. However, according to the post, the game is "nearly surrealistic" and features "wildly anachronistic gear," so don't expect the story to be too gritty or serious.
No price or release date has been revealed, but the site promises more info "soon."
