Tenchu 4, which will launch in North America and Europe in early 2009, is currently in development by the original Tenchu developers (Acquire) and will make use of the motion-sensitive controls possible with the Wii.
According to Ubisoft, Tenchu 4 will use the Wii Remote to fight, dash, jump and kill “like a true ninja.” Players will continue the saga of Rikimaru and Ayame, elite ninjas who must use their lethal skills to keep the peace in feudal Japan.
