Tenchu Revival For PS5 Teased By Acquire President

Acquire president Takuma Endo has revealed that he’s interested in reviving the Tenchu franchise for the PS5 if the opportunity presents itself.

Speaking during an interview with Famitsu magazine, Endo-san said that he’d like to create a new game in the stealth-based franchise for PS5 from the ground-up, but noted it’s currently ‘difficult’ to do so. He added that the ‘Stealth Assassin’ trademark will lay the groundwork for a possible revival.

The trademark was registered by Acquire back in August 2018 because had expired, not because a new game was actually in the pipeline.

The Tenchu franchise started out life on the PSOne back in the late 1990s with Tench: Stealth Assassins, and was followed by Tenchu 2: Birth of the Assassins for PSOne and Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven for PS2 and Xbox.

The last entry in the series, Tenchu: Shadow Assassins, was release for Wii and PSP in 2008 and 2009, respecetively.
