Microsoft has confirmed to the US press that Tenchu 360 will be available on American shelves sometime this year.
It's being tentatively called Tenchu Z, though any other concrete details are mysteriously scarce. Hidden, you might say. Waiting to pounce.
The game, developed by From Software, was released in Japan last October. It's the largest title of the eight-strong series and allows you to create your very own ninja, building your own skills rather than choosing from a pre-set template.
There are more than 50 missions, and you'll have to use all manner of items to survive, including grappling hooks, ninja stars, potions, and bombs.
There's no word on a European excursion; we're crossing our ninja-slippers in anticipation.
