Stealthy Aragami Set For PS4, MGS And Tenchu Fans Will Love It

If you miss Tenchu, we've got some good news.

Okay, it isn't a new series entry but it's still very similar and besides, brand new IPs are always exciting, right?

Developer Lince Works has announced a new stealth game where you will play as an undead assassin. It's called Aragami and the darkness is your greatest ally; it lets you teleport instantly from shadow to shadow, create new areas of darkness so you remain invisible, and even materialize physical weapons and traps from thin air. Oh, and a shadow dragon. Who doesn't want a freakin' shadow dragon?!

Your enemy is the Kaiho; they are an army of warriors that can control light. They use exploding traps, ethereal lights and supernatural sword techniques to stop you, so you'll need to stick to the shadows. It's very much like the reverse of other games, where you used light to battle darkness, and I like the role reversal here.

You will also unlock special abilities that cater to one of two gameplay styles: Demon or Ghost. Are you the kind of player who wants to kill everyone in sight before moving on to the next area, or would you rather sneak through unseen, causing as little commotion and death as possible? There are skills that suit both styles, so feel free to play as you will!

The team says Aragami was "heavily inspired" by games like Tenchu, Metal Gear Solid, Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored. Hey, if this effort is the result of combining those four IPs, I say we should expect something pretty darn special, right?

Aragami should be ready to go this fall.

The powers in this seem too OP. The teleporting takes the fun out of sneaking around. While it was fun to use in games like Dishonored it also made it too easy. Just bring back Tenchu :(

Exactly, but I think Tenchu might be gone forever.

Some of these stealth games really are for guys like me, who can't take the long, hard to the stealth kill like the PS2 hitman games. I loved them, but I got anxiety man and carrying bodies through the house to stay unseen was so punishing. So I like stuff that makes it a bit easier on us wimps.

Looks boring.
Can't say I'm hyped.
Not to mention the graphic looks outdated.

Is this an indie game?

I would call it "artistic" rather than outdated. Never heard of Lince Works so I'd say it probably qualifies as indie.

I hope From soft revisits Tenchu soon. I remember Miyazaki saying that he wanted to bring back some old IPs and he mentioned Tenchu.

This game looks pretty sweet though!

I see the influence from Tenchu but that is not like Tenchu. Depending on the price i might try it though.
