Way of the Samurai 3 now coming to PS3 in the US

Submitted by on Tuesday, 7 July 2009No Comment

Way of the Samurai 3 logo Way of the Samurai 3 now coming to PS3 in the USSome games run through a completely smooth project plan, development path and publishing calendar, never even breaking into a mild sweat before arriving in retail stores.

But other titles have a much more difficult time of things. Way of the Samurai 3 is a good example of the latter.

Once a PS3 exclusive, then a timed PS3 exclusive, the game was announced in North America as an Xbox 360 exclusive. And now that has changed once more…

The problem came around when the US publisher, UFO, got involved with the title. Because UFO are not licenced to distribute PlayStation titles, the game became an Xbox 360 exclusive only thanks to the status of the publisher.

It now seems that Agetec have got involved in the US and since they’re a licenced publisher, they will be bringing Way of the Samurai 3 to the PS3 in that region.

For those who don’t know, Way of the Samurai 3 (Samurai Dou 3 in Japan) is an action/adventure title set in feudal Japan. The game sold 80,000 copies in the first 3 days of sales in Japan and garnered a 31/40 score from Famitsu.
