NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Rikimaru and Ayame are back as stealth assassins under the employ of Lord Gohda who skulk in dark places and attack with sword slashes and one-hit killing blows. Tenchu 4 emphasizes the use of stealth and the game provides a bevy of shadowy places to hide, wait, and attack from. The environments are darkly lit which also attend to a ninja's need for stealth. Unsuspecting enemies who approach Rikimaru's general vicinity but are unaware of his presence may be killed with a single critical stroke. For example, when a hapless victim draws near, Riki can grab him and then perform a powerful blow to the head which kills him instantly. Rikimaru can also topple an enemy from afar by throwing a single shuriken which causes the victim lose his balance and fall to his death. Another killing attack allows Rikimaru to choke someone for about a second but that single second is all that it takes to induce the long sleep. Dead bodies may be stored in large urns or pulled behind bushes to hide them from view. That way, they won't alert any other guards to Riki or Ayame's presence.
As the story goes, a rival of Gohda has kidnapped his daughter Kiku-Hime and spirited her away to an unknown domain. Rikimaru and Ayame are charged with venturing forth and rescuing the Princess. Tenchu's original developer Acquire returns to the franchise that they built and Tenchu 4 was recently released on the Nintendo Wii. The port to the Playstation Portable takes away the Wii Remote functionality but the ninja skulking experience remains the same.

Japanese PSP games may be played on North American and European PSP handhelds
NCS Game Notes
» Killing strokes are activated by pressing the "SQUARE" button when you're directly behind or near an unsuspecting enemy. Early in the game, you'll make Rikimaru roll from bush to bush by pressing and holding the "R-Trigger" and then pushing left or right on the analog nub. Lamps may be blown out by walking right in from of them and then pressing the "O" button. Rikimaru will be heard blowing out the lamp with an audible "whoosh" sound effect.

» To pick up a dead body, walk over it and then press the "O" button. Rikimaru will sling the body over his shoulder. To drop it off somewhere, press the "X" button.

» The blood runs ruddy and jets out like mini geysers from a hapless victim's body.
