Way of the Samurai 4: Shinsengumi DLC PS3

Way of the Samurai 4: Shinsengumi DLC PS3Ok this is old news. But I figured if I didn’t know about it up until 2 weeks ago, some of you probably haven’t either. I loved the “Way of the Samurai” games ever since I first played the first one on PS2. It’s like choose your own adventure type of gameplay only of course you get to do it Bushi-do style. Currently I’m re-playing WotS3 the past few weeks. Due to that my interest in WotS4 has been rekindled and I was looking for a US release (no luck). But Apparently WotS4 being in the timeline of the bakumatsu and dealing with opening Japan to foreigners, it was only a matter of time before they introduced real life characters into the game. They first introduced Ryoma so if you’d like to play as him, he’s DLC... But for most of us I think we’d rather play as a Shinsengumi member. In Japan it was released for free for a short time and then it was 6USD. Read more for the pics of the Shinsengumi DLC in case you were interested...
