I've played what amounts to hundreds of hours of Tenchu back in the PlayStation era -- mostly the first two games, and that wonderful, wonderful level editor. So when anything advertises itself as inspired by the franchise, my interest is piqued.
Twin Souls is a new Kickstarter that seeks to combine Tenchu with the "modern approach of recent gems like Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored." As the Aragami, the spirit of vengeance, you'll take down enemies by way of stealth, as well as special moves like teleportation.
Even in its very early stages Twin Souls looks intriguing, so I'll be keeping my eye on this one.
