Activision Gets Three Big Titles

Tenchu, Beneath, and The Legend of the Five Rings now are part of the Activision stable.


Activision will be publishing a trio of games - Tenchu from Sony Music Entertainment, Beneath from Presto Studios, and The Legend of the Five Rings from Engineering Animation Inc. - thanks to publishing partnership agreements it announced today.

The third-person ninja warfare game Tenchu has sold 250,000 units in Japan since its release in that country in February of this year; Activision picked up the PlayStation and PC publishing rights to the game outside of Japan.

Presto Studios is the developer behind the Journeyman Project adventure game series for the PC; Beneath will be a 3D action-adventure game developed by that company.

The Legend of the Five Rings (also for PC) is slated to be a role-playing game based on the trading card game developed by Wizards of the Coast, the creators of the Magic the Gathering trading card game.
