With elements from Tenchu Z

Jinger369d ago

Which elements? Because I thought Z was the weakest entry

Zeref369d ago

Multiplayer and character customization.

I originally thought it would be a new Bloodborne but after being presented with evidence of a kunai embedded within the weapon, along with the kanji script in the background, I'm thinking it will be Tenchu.

I agree. I've had enough SoulsBorne games for now. There's been something like 6 of them in the past 8 years. And I'm playing through Nioh again right now on PC. I think From Software should give those types of games a break.

A new Tenchu would be great because it has been many years since we've had one and it's something different than most games these days. I think the current From Software could do something really amazing with a new Tenchu game.

I think with the success of BB, it will be a new IP. This is the perfect chance for them to capitalize on a new creation.

Why do people want Bloodbourn 2? It ended pretty well just like Demon souls. I think a direct sequel would take away from the whole nightmare concept. I would rather have a similar game but it a new setting. Just my opinion. I mean if they made Bloodbourn 2 of course I would get it day one don't get me wrong

Here we go again with the "a sequel wouldn't just ruin the first game" assumption.
Didn't people say the same thing about TLOU?
People want a Bloodborne 2 because the first game was awesome.

Simply said he’d be happy with a new setting OR still take a sequel. Bit of an overreaction to tarnish one random post with ‘here we go again’ and make up your own quote.

I just loved the combat and how aggressive it is and I want more of it. Lol

It wouldn't have to be a direct sequel, just a game in the same universe. It could be set in a different time frame, or a different land. Eileen the Crow was from somewhere else and Yamamura was from a distant land in the East. They could even cover what first went down with the Pthumarians or Gherman's first hunts or something, I don't know.

Honestly, I loved Tenchu too, so I'm torn because I'd also love another one of those games. The bloody winch made of bone just doesn't really seem to fit Tenchu's aesthetic though. Maybe it's a grappling hook or something? But still, it just doesn't seem to fit in with Tenchu to me.

I'll take it no matter what it is though, I love being punished by their games.

starchild369d ago (Edited 369d ago )

Tenchu has always had lots of blood and horror and dark fantasy themes. I don't see how the teaser trailer would be out of place at all.

There are so many things that point to it possibly being Tenchu. The traditional Japanese music, the old cursive kanji writing, the kunai that seems to be embedded in that device, the same wood carving tools seen in the Tenchu Wrath of Heaven item select screen, the "shadows die twice" quote and the overall dark feudal Japan atmosphere. Hell, even that device looks like it might be a grappling hook.

I'm not saying it definitely is Tenchu, although I would love for it to be. I'm just saying that what we have to go on fits Tenchu better than any other known IP.

fenome369d ago (Edited 369d ago )

True, true. I only played the first two, so I'm no expert by any means. I'm just voicing my little thoughts and hopes. It just seems to me that the weaponry was more traditional in Tenchu as apposed to mechanical or whatever I'm trying to say. Lol

Those links, along with a lot of videos I've seen are very compelling on the Tenchu side. I don't remember the puppet master in Tenchu, it's been a long time since I've played. Gherman also built the Doll though, so I still think there are good arguments on any side. Maybe it's a new IP where they incorporate everything they've learned from each series and make it it's own thing, who knows?

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to play a new gen assassin. I loved the different approaches and trying to get through levels without being spotted.

I'll gladly welcome whatever they throw at me whether it's a sequel of some sort or a new IP. FromSoft is great at being vague and tormenting their fanbase, so I'm sure they're loving all the boards blow up with theories and speculation on what this is and all the great detective work pouring into their tiny teaser. Lol

End of the day, they're the only ones who truly know what they're working on and we aren't going to find out what it is until they tell us. I just hope we don't have to wait too much longer to find out. The anticipation is killing me!

fenome369d ago (Edited 369d ago )

Okay, after looking up your links I looked up Dr. Kimaira and the mechanical aspect fits right in. Very intriguing indeed. I don't know how I missed out on the third one back in the day, I'm gonna have to order it on Amazon and boot up the old backwards compatible ps3 for this :p

uth11368d ago

i agree. i'd like something in that vein that isnt a direct to BB or the souls games

theshredded369d ago

It's tenchu or something else you stupid idiots. That kunai, writing and flute sound is not souls/borne related. AND the subtitle definitely kills any speculation about a soulsborne game. IGN getting them clicks and consumers being played like a damn fiddle.

King_Lothric369d ago

If it's not Bloodborne 2 then I will be disappointed 😥.
