Tenchu Lives… As A Stage Play


It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new Tenchu game, but the series isn’t completely dead. Inside Games (via: Anime News Network) reports that From Software announced a Tenchu stage play this past Friday.


The play will run from May 7th – 11th at the Theater Sun Mall in Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward. It will feature an original story whereby Ayame goes missing amidst a fight between Rikimaru and an assassin named Rin.


The last Tenchu game to be released was 2008’s Tenchu: Shadow Assassins. The game was released on the Wii and PSP.
