Way of the Samurai is set in the year 1878. The collapse of the Tokugawa
Shogun ate and the rise of the Meiji Restoration Era has brought an end to
the Age of Samurai. For centuries, Japan has remained untouched and
separate from other cultures. But now Westerners have finally arrived on the
island nation, rocking a culture that has developed in seclusion over
hundreds of years. Born to a time that no longer needs or welcomes them,
these samurai are a far cry from the heroes and legends that preceded
them. This is a story of the Way of the Samurai in their final days.

In the game, the player takes on the role of a wandering samurai who is
drawn into a conflict between the Kurofu family and the Akadama Clan over
 an iron foundry. As the player meets the both sides in the dispute, the player
will begin to make the choices that will shape the outcome of the conflict.
Deception and betrayal are tools at the player's disposal, but ultimately
combat will be the final deciding factor. 

Featuring a new and dynamic combat system, sword-based combat is at the
heart of Way of the Samurai. As the adventure begins, the player has his
own sword and basic knowledge of its use in battle. As he moves through the
game, the player become more adept at using his sword and learns new
attacks. The player also has the ability to pick up dozens of different swords,
each representing a different fighting style. With attacks specific to each
sword, it requires a true samurai to master all the swords and their individual
attacks. Additionally, sword combat is not simply a matter of hacking and
slashing. Timing, blocking and balance all play equally important roles.
