Wako Factory, a French indie development studio, has announced Samurai Riot, their 2D, solo or co-op Arcade Beat’em Up for PC which set to be released on Steam in September 2017 and will cost £10.99, $14.99, €14.99. Fans of this genre can look forward to a visual treat, where a backdrop story compels the player to really think about their decisions in game and the ramifications of their choices.

Having been hired to bring peace and tranquility to the warring land, each choice you make as a Samurai, Tsurumaru/ Sukane, will have an influence on your destiny and, with an arsenal of deadly attacks at your disposal, the fight to make it through each battle will require guile, skill and forethought.

You can check out the games trailer below. Kevin Buchet, game designer at Wako Factory, spoke about the upcoming game, saying:

“The main inspiration in the creation of Samurai Riot is really simple –  we always loved to play cooperative games, especially arcade style – with each other. We felt that there are not enough local cooperative games to play,  so we decided to develop our own Beat’em Up, that focuses on the co-op experience. We are also big fans of Japanese history and we have spent a lot of time on the backdrop story of the game, where you have to make the decision on what you would sacrifice in order to preserve your honor as a samurai and feel that our game seamlessly mixes traditional Japanese elements and mythology, in a fresh and modern take on the classic genre.”

The game is set to have a number of features, including:

  • A unique cooperative system with devastating combined attacks
  • Multi-branching storyline with moral decision making
  • 8 different endings
  • 2D Arcade Gameplay
  • Strong replay value: change your gameplay by choosing between various fighting schools
  • Superb in game music and SFX

Samurai Riot offers a plethora of choices and features including both solo and cooperative play, where the story immerses both players equally, with a multi-branching storyline, complete with eight different endings. The game will land on Steam in September.
