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.
What other legacy games are you hoping to see get a new lease of life on Switch? Let us know with a comment.
this is my kinda jam!
holding my breath for a western release.
Cool, looks a bit like Tenchu.
That screenshot of the ninja hanging from the ceiling in the well-lit hallway slays me, lol. "Like...what're you doing there, bro?"
Stealing kimonos from town girls. Wholesome.
Looks like it could be good.
Yeah, I am gonna assume no western release for this unless said otherwise
So many good releases for Nintendo Switch... That are available only in Japan and only in Japanese language... Well... Does it better than nothing? I doubt about it.
@anoyonmus Probably no western release... That port of Nintendo DS game that released(or announced?) a few weeks ago still don't have release date for PAL regions and NA. But this game already had English translation when it's released on Nintendo DS.
Ooh Aquire? My favorite C list publisher/dev? Sold.
@OldManHermit yes! When I saw this, it reminded me of a good old 3d ninja ... But I just couldn't recall the name. Tenchu Stealth Assassins it was!
Tenchu Tenchu Tenchu!!
Where is it?!
Just give us the actual Tenchu c'mon Acquire.
Just as an update, it was announced for a US release as well.
