Ubisoft bringing Tenchu IV to NA, Europe


Western ninjas may not have the training of their Japanese brethren, but Ubisoft wants to change that.

The company revealed to IGN Monday it has picked up Tenchu IV, the latest in the long-running ninja stealth series, for publication in North America and Europe.

In Tenchu IV, gamers will take on the roles of two assassins and use the Wii remote to “fight, dash, jump and kill like a true ninja.”

The title will continue the franchise’s saga of Rikimaru and Ayame, superior ninjas who must put their skills to use in order to keep the peace in feudal Japan. Rikimaru uses stealth to advance through levels, while Ayame is both acrobatic and aggressive. Tenchu IV boasts more than 10 missions and 50 side quests.

Tenchu IV is being developed by Acquire, the team behind the first two Tenchu games. It was revealed in June as a Wii exclusive.
