Way of the Samurai 2 is set during feudal era Japan at the end of the Edo period, in the conflict-laden town of Amahara. A once peaceful town, Amahara has become the center of a tense conflict between two powerful forces at the expense of its innocent townspeople. The Amahara magistrate office, which once upheld peace and justice, has succumbed to the suppression ideology of the rising feudal government and has become an extreme tyrannical force that rules the innocent townsfolk. They are at odds with a rogue group of warriors known as the Aoto gang. Like the magistrate office, this group had long represented values of loyalty and chivalry, but the death of their former leader left them vulnerable. Several would-be successors began claiming rights to leadership and the gang soon transformed into an uncontrollable group of arrogant and violent vigilantes that terrorize the defenseless citizens of Amahara.
Way of the Samurai was marked by its open-ended gameplay and the sequel not only continues this formula but expands upon it. In Way of the Samurai 2, players take on the role of a wandering samurai who has come upon Amahara during his travels. Instead of a two day period as in the original, players will proceed in a deeper ten day adventure where they explore the town and become entwined in its turmoil. How the main character chooses to proceed through the game and which people he chooses to help or fight will determine the subsequent storyline and consequences for the people around him. Players must prove their sword-fighting skills in heated confrontations, interact with a wide spectrum of characters and explore various locales throughout the town.
