Tenchu: Stealth Assassins is crying out for a remake, fans agree

Tenchu: Stealth Assassins is crying out for a remake, fans agree

With the past few years seeing remakes and remasters become as popular as ever, there is no wonder that fans are calling out for their favourite classic games to receive the same treatment. More recently, that seems to be the case for Tenchu: Stealth Assassins.

First released way back in 1998 for the PlayStation, Tenchu: Stealth Assassins is as you probably guessed, a stealth video game that was published by Sony in Japan and Activision in the West. As the debut entry in the Tenchu series, the game went on to become quite popular and as a result, fans are calling out for its revival 26-years after release.

The topic was broached after a post was made on the /XboxSeriesX thread some time last year. The original poster wrote: “My pick for an IP revival” alongside an image of Tenchu: Stealth Assassins. As you can imagine, it was not long before people started getting involved in the conversation.

“I forgot this was Activision. Heck yeah this would be awesome,” read one reply. However, other clued-up fans were quick to point out that Activision does not in fact own the IP and instead worked as publishers for the title. A few years ago, FromSoftware had plans to develop a Tenchu title but this project instead turned into Sekiro.

“I hope this isn’t the go to every time they think about making a new Tenchu. Sekiro is great, but Tenchu’s series was amazing,” one user replied.

Telling the story of a ninja in 16th-century Japan, the Tenchu series only went on to receive four main entries. However, it has a total of 14 titles including spin-offs, mobile games and ports/re-releases. Despite this, the most recent entry was released back in 2008 so it is definitely due a revival.

However, with FromSoftware turning its attention to some bigger projects (Elden Ring cough cough*), it may be a while until we see a Tenchu: Stealth Assassins remake. Never say never!
