Tenchu Announced
July 29, 2003

Activision announced it is bringing its ninja franchise Tenchu to the Xbox. Tenchu: Return From Darkness builds upon the success of Tenchu: Wraith of Heaven (PS2). Tenchu: Return From Darkness will feature an updated design, technical enhancements, new maps and features, and Xbox Live support. 

Tenchu: Return From Darkness will have three gameplay modes. There is a Single Player, Two-Player, and Xbox Live mode. The Two-Player mode is split into either versus or co-op. The title will also include 11 stages in story mode with two new maps. There are also six multiplayer levels. The game will also feature cut-screens and a training mode.

The Xbox Live mode allows for two-player co-op missions through the six multiplayer levels and voice chat support. Players can simultaneously kill enemies.

"We're excited to give Xbox gamers the opportunity to play the most authentic stealth based ninja game ever," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "Tenchu: Return from Darkness takes the franchise to new heights with never before seen levels and enemies, enhanced maneuvers, more weapons and Xbox Live capabilities, making it the first Tenchu title to feature online gameplay."

Tenchu: Return to Darkness is set in the late 1570ís, taking place one year after the original Tenchu. This game allows players to take on the roles of the ninjas Rikimaru, Ayame, or Tesshu. Players will control them in their battle against Tenrai and his six lords of darkness. Players will need to use strategy, stealth, cunning, and weapons in order to survive.

Expect Tenchu: Return From Darkness in the Spring of 2004.
