First Tenchu on 360 video

First Tenchu on 360 video

From Software released these two videos, encoded into one by myself, of Tenchu on Xbox 360. I can't say I'm impressed.

Hey this game may shine on gameplay merits :) I really liked that running on the side of the wall stuff.

At any rate chromehounds, this... all tuneups for the main event :) Otogi 360 (I can dream right?)

holy shit, Tenchu!!! lots of heads will fall

ok, so its not ninja gaiden quality graphics, but it doesnt look that bad. Some coold gameplay tidbits too like the aroundcorner attack and the stabbin' through the japanese door. pretty cool.

Now, when From Software is done mocking around they should start serious buisness and develop Otogi for the next gen systems, like Optimus suggested. Holy cow that would rock! :)

Fingers crossed!!!

Hopefully we'll get to see Takeuchi's next game at TGS. His team seems to be the only one worth the money at From Software.

What's the due date on this? I mean maybe it will "do a Bullet Witch"? :\

Wow. That looks TERRIBLE. I love the Tenchu series, but... wow. What an abortion of a game.
Commented on 2006-07-11 10:54:07
maybe they can do a complete 180 like bullet witch

Looks nice, alot of skills going on.

i saw the images and i got pissed off. it seems like if these devs want the 360 to fail but after watching the video, i was intrigued.

compared to how tenchu has been on the ps2, it was never an amazing looking game. I think this could be very interesting though. Same, the video would be impressive for tenchu fans. It's not my kind of game, but this is how tenchu has always been!

Looks a bit pony to me :?

barbie and her horse could save this game!

seriously though, when is the release date for this, or is there one yet? the graphics aren't bad enough that they couldn't be vastly improved, and we're only seeing a few tiny scenes from the game, which is hopefully early in development.

its ok for my part. Though I like how you can customize your own ninja assassin (awesome feature if it was on Ninja Gaiden 2 online co-op...I man can dream and hope for the best). But other than that, the video quality is poor so you cant really tell how the graphics looks like in HD. But the gameply, its the good old Tenchu.

There's no way to get a good impression of the graphics of this game at that resolution.
Gameplay looks interesting but it I'm not too excited yet.

Is there a reason Japanese screen shots are always so small?
Commented on 2006-07-11 14:56:03
What the hell... From Software has produced some amazing looking games in the past (Otogi, Enchanted Arms, etc) so it's a bit confusing to see them almost take a step back like in this case..
Commented on 2006-07-11 15:39:08
I never could understand how when developing a game, the devs dont realize how shitty their game looks.
Commented on 2006-07-11 16:12:42
Game looks terrible, And from software know how to do graphics.. ill wait a little bit.. I know the game still early

O snaps!
Commented on 2006-07-11 16:30:46
Hope they might improve next time :)

gfx and animation must be upgraded, and whats wit this all clothing stuff ?? why every game must be like sims tons of clothes and stuff ? they should focuse more on gamplay and gfx instead.

About the game

What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (46 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (49 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (50 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (59 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @droezelke: you use the standard controller or the elite? (1 Hour ago)
