Learn the history of Ayame and Rikimaru in this prequel to the top-selling Tenchu. Following the death of their parents, these ninja warriors were raised to be skilled apprentices. The story of Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins starts with their struggle to defend Lord Ghoda from assassination. They soon start to unravel the sinister power grab behind the coup.
Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins contains an intense story line, stealth missions, and brutal action. The combat is modeled after authentic ninja moves and utilizes traditional weaponry, including shuriken, caltrops, grenades, poison blow guns, exploding arrows, and smoke bombs. You’ll be able to swim to targets for surprise attacks and search the bodies of your victims for ninja items. There are a total of 29 missions here–11 each for Rikimaru and Ayame and seven for an unlockable third ninja. And if that isn’t enough to satisfy the ninja in you, the game also comes with a mission editor that allows you to design your own missions, which you can then complete or use to challenge friends via the separately sold memory card.
