This Is What Tenchu 4 Looks Like On PSP

image Yes, Tenchu 4 is coming to the PSP. Japan gets it on February 12, but Tenchu 4 on the PSP isn’t exactly the same experience you get with the Wii. Anyone that picks up the PSP version has to give up motion control in exchange for portability. Some gamers might consider that a positive, but the graphics are also taking a noticeable hit. Instead of shadowy figures the PSP version gives you solid color models when you use your ninja vision.

 

The Wii version has plenty of quick time events which require motion control. It appears that Tenchu 4 for the PSP handles these with pop up commands on the bottom of the screen.

  • daizyujin

    I am just glad I can play it without all the waggle. I can’t see that being much fun.

  • Buntaro

    I see this as a win – win situation:
    solid visuals PSP game with button controls for people that don’t like/own a Wii, and a good 3rd party game for the Wii owners.
