Gamasutra interviewed Richie Casper from Acquire about the past, present and future of stealth. Nothing about a new Tenchu, but still a nice read. Check it out here.
Life, well particularly work, has been very busy these past 4 weeks. In September I attended Tokyo Game Show to present Tengami, the game I am working on, at Sense of Wonder Night. Just a week later I traveled to Culver City in the US to present Tengami at IndieCade, an independent game’s festival. I had a great time, but the constant on the road life-style left me with no time to report back to you earlier.
As most of you probably already know by now, FromSoftware did not make any Tenchu related announcements at the TokyoGameShow. I did some digging, asking my friends at Acquire and other friends in the Japanese game industry, if they had heard anything about a Tenchu game being in development. From what I have heard it appears that FromSoftware are currently not working on a new Tenchu game. Of course a new Tenchu game might be FromSoftware’s best kept secret at this point, but I would not get my hopes up. I wish I had better news for you, guess we just need to keep waiting and enjoy the other games out there. On Twitter a lot of people mentioned ‘Mark of the Ninja’ as a good 2D stealth game on XBLA. I have not had the chance to play it myself though.
It is less than a month until Tokyo Game Show. Possibly FromSoftware will announce or at least hint at the possibility of a new Tenchu. Tokyo Game Show takes place from September 20th to 23rd. I have plans to attend, though for non Tenchu related purposes, but I will certainly look out for any Tenchu related news and rumours.
