Sega Europe has announced the European release date of the forthcoming PlayStation Portable exclusive, Tenchu: Time of the Assassins. The stealth action game will be available from June 23 and will feature full 3D environments.
Veterans of the PlayStation 2 franchise will notice enhanced stealth actions and new kill moves as well as the classic Tenchu characters Rikimaru, Ayame, Rin, and Tesshu.
Each of them will have a unique story in the single-player campaign, and there are 50 further stand-alone missions to play through as well. Gamers will also be able to connect wirelessly to play missions cooperatively or head-to-head.
According to Matt Woodley, creative director of Sega, the game's ambition is to "offer all the strategy of a stealth game but none of the frustration". With this in mind, every enemy in the game can be killed using stealth tactics, including the bosses.
We'll have more on the game nearer its release.
