Yes, it's supposed to take inspiration from the Tenchu series
. I hope it's good, but i'm cautious.
*I'm sorry this post is not meant as a derail of this thread just wanted to share something I just found.*
I'm happy to know this game might come here. I just saw Jesse Cox covering it at E3
and searched for it on Google. I found a movie with that name and assumed the game was based on it. But when you posted this I went back and checked more info on that movie. I'm not so sure the game is based on it anymore but found out about the cool premise on which this movie has been filmed. From wikipedia:
is a 2003 Japanese action film directed by Ryuhei Kitamura. It was Kitamura's contribution to the Duel Project, a challenge issued by producer Shinya Kawai to him and fellow director Yukihiko Tsutsumi to film a feature-length movie with only two actors, battling in one setting, in only the time frame of one week.
Two seriously wounded samurai find refuge from a storm at an isolated temple, the home of a swordsman and a mysterious young woman.
One samurai awakes to find that not only has his comrade died, but that his wounds have miraculously healed. He discovers that he has been given the power of immortality by the swordsman, a man once known as the legendary Miyamoto Musashi, who now lives an endless existence as Aragami, a "god of battle"."
The other movie looks interesting too.
is a 2003 Japanese film, directed by Yukihiko Tsutsumi as part of the Duel Project, starring Maho Nonami and Eiko Koike.
Two ambitious actresses, who share an apartment, learn they have been short-listed for the same part and that they have to wait for one more night to see who wins the part. As they bicker throughout the night, their competitiveness and hidden grudges turn their apartment into a battlefield."
So for Asian movie buffs it's two movies to maybe keep a look out for. If anyone has seen any of these movie and liked or hated them please PM me, I'm curious to know if they're worth looking for. Sorry for the temporary derail. Thanks again pe7ouill3 for the info about it possibly coming here.
