Tokyo-based publisher Acquire has announced Kamiwaza Tourai, a remastered version of the PS2 stealth-action game from 2006. The game will launch in Japan later this year.

The release will improve on the original release in multiple ways, including HD graphics, updated textures, an auto-save feature, multiple tutorial adjustments, and more.

Here's a breakdown of the title from Acquire:

The player takes on the role of Ebizo, a chivalrous bandit who steals from the wicked to help the weak.

“Swiftly steal merchandise displayed inside shops with elegance.”
“Break into vaults and warehouses to rob them.”
“Pickpocket valuables from under people’s noses.”
“Even steal kimonos from town girls.”

Master the art of stealing with various thieving actions tailored to all sorts of situations and targets. The story will change in various ways depending on the people you encounter and the decisions you make as you progress.

Currently, the game has only been announced for Japan, but we're hopeful for a western release soon after.
