Ubisoft announce Tenchu in US/EU
Posted by Anthony Dickens
Although we knew about the Japanese game, Ubisoft have now confirmed the western version coming early next year.
Today Ubisoft announced Tenchu™ 4, the newest addition to the Tenchu™ franchise exclusively for the Wii™ system, will launch in North America and Europe in early 2009. The development team behind the original Tenchu, Acquire, brings a fresh new look, feel and motion to the Tenchu franchise.
Tenchu 4 will use the Wii Remote™ to fight, dash, jump and kill like a true ninja. Players will continue the saga of Rikimaru and Ayame, elite ninjas who must use their lethal skills to keep the peace in feudal Japan. Playing as both stealthy Rikimaru and the aggressive and acrobatic Ayame, players will fight their way through more than 10 missions and 50 side quests and experience the thrilling adventure of being the ultimate ninja.
Tenchu 4 will come to a North American and European audience where it will be well-received by both fans of the series as well as Wii owners who have been looking for an edgy and exciting game. And if it's katanas, throwing stars, daggers and smoke bombs you're looking for, then, yeah, it’s got all those too.
Being developed by the original team this latest version of Tenchu could put the franchise back into winning ways, we're certainly looking forward to this one!
Looking pretty decent..
