- SEGA Europe today announced that Tenchu: Fatal Shadows (original title: Tenchu Kurenai), developed by K2 studios, will ship in Spring 2005 across Europe as a PlayStation 2 exclusive. The game is the sequel to the beautiful Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven, released in 2003 for PlayStation 2.
Set in historical Japan, Tenchu: Fatal Shadows features two playable ninja warriors - returning heroine Ayame and newcomer Rin. According to SEGA, the game has been developed with the idea of avoding he frustrating trial-and-error pattern common in the stealth genre, and present also in Tenchu: Wrath Of Heaven. The graphics engine has been upgraded, and new moves and abilities have been added to the already solid game mechanics, like the possibility to hide bodies and breath underwater.
"The signing of Tenchu: Fatal Shadows is further proof of SEGA's commitment to grow its worldwide business via an aggressive acquisitions strategy," said Mike Hayes, Managing Director of Sega Europe Ltd. "Tenchu: Fatal Shadows stretches the boundaries of what a quality stealth game can be and SEGA aims to extend the life and profile of this highly successful franchise."
