'Tenchu Z' (X360) Goes Gold - 12 New Screens

by Rainier on May 25, 2007 @ 8:40 a.m. PDT

Tenchu Z features a new robust character editor, allowing you to create your own Ninja. Much improved AI will be able to hear or smell you, so clean your blood-soaked outfit to not raise suspicion. An indicator will show when you are at the proper distance for a stealth kill, use your grappler or grab enemies while you are on the ceiling.

K2, the creative minds behind Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven, present the latest installment of the renowned Tenchu franchise, Tenchu Z exclusively for the Xbox 360. The title is the first mission-based ninja stealth action game for the Xbox 360, and allows players to hone their stealth skills while slaying enemies to become the ultimate ninja. Patience and strategy, with use of the stealth kill system, is rewarded over a run-and-gun style of hand-to-hand combat.

Tenchu Z will task willing ninjas to assassinate evil doers, track enemies, rescue hostages and destroy targets using the art of stealth. For the first time ever, gamers can create their own ninja hero with the character customization features that include a variety of face types, hair features, outfits, accessories and more. Gamers can play solo at home or take advantage of co-operative play with two to four players through Xbox LIVE or System Link. Players can work cooperatively for a completely different ninja experience and team up with a friend to complete the missions and take out foes. Let a friend subdue a boss from behind as another runs him through with a katana. Special co-op moves are also available, adding variety and depth to the gameplay experience.

Tenchu Z, rated M for Mature, will sneak onto store shelves across the nation on June 12 for the estimated retail price of $59.99.
