Ubisoft has announced today that it will be publishing Tenchu 4 exclusively for the Wii in North America and Europe. Acquire, the team behind the original Tenchu, will be developing the title, which will be available in early 2009.
Tenchu 4 continues to deliver the stealth-ninja gameplay that the series is famous for, adding Wii Remote controls for fighting, jumping, and more. The game will feature 10 missions and 50 side quests, and can be played though as the stealthy Rikimaru or the more aggressive (and cuter) Ayame.
The best part about this announcement is how presumptuous the press release is: “Tenchu 4 will come to North American and European audiences 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.” There you go — ten out of ten, confirmed. You will like this game.
