Will the dream of a new Tenchu game finally become reality?

It’s a bit of a reach, but From Software wants to expand its portfolio of games – could we finally get a Tenchu reboot?


According to an interview with Famitsu, as detailed by Siliconera, president of From Software Hidetaka Miyazaki has said he wants to create more Japanese-style video games.

As well as Dark Souls, From Software has also created Armored Core, Otogi and Tenchu.

Could we see From Software return to some of these beloved classics? With interest in the developer at an all-time high, it’s in a good position to revisit fan-favourites and deliver them to its new audience post-Dark Souls.

“The steady flow of dark fantasy games and mecha are something we’d like to continue taking good care of,” said Miyazaki.

“Mecha” equals Armored Core. And Tenchu, as well as the feudal Japan setting, also had a “dark fantasy” vibe using mystical and supernatural characters and opponents.

Here’s hoping. Fingers crossed.
