    After a quick play I like it. You don't really have to be familiar with the previous games to understand what to do either. Stealth Kills or finish levels without being seen is the name of the game here, or.. run fast and slice everything!
    The views from the previous games have gone, this is like a pulled back overhead view now, very much like a tactics game! When you slash someone up it shows a small cut scene on the bottom screen of the guy you cut up, and how you did it. They also drop items.
    I don't know whether to play more or wait for an English version now.

    Its been made by FROM SOFTWARE who I really really love. These guys are totally underated IMO. They have made some great games like Otogi and Otogi 2: Myth of Demons, also METAL WOLF CHAOS which is a great Mech Action game with fully destructable enviroments and vehicles (you play as the US President in a Mech suit LOADED with weapons, its a real blast fest). If you have a modded Xbox I can't stress enough how much you should try Metal Wolf Chaos and witness its bad voice acting! lol Apart from that it rules. The game menus are in JAP but everything else is English its sweet. I was also looking forward to Em Enchant Arm for x360 by FS, but after the JPN release some magazines have bashed the game too much for my money. If it ever gets a US or EUR release maybe it will be tidied up.

    Well it depends on what you want, if you don't mind not reading story yet then sure play it. I've played through many games in Japanese from Castlevanias to Metal Gear to Resident Evil to Zeldas and many more so I consider my tolerance high.
    It depends how much you want to play the game, even though I know I could probably finish it or get quite far, I think I might wait as I like the series, like the developer, and find the game appealing from a quick go of this release. The trap you fall into is if you do play far or finish it, you sometimes find yourself dissapointed and not bother to play through when the USA release comes out. I've done that with a few games like Zelda Minish Cap and Metal Gear Ac!d.

    I'm doing a menu-translation (more like explanation) now. I'll post the results soon.

    EDIT: I didn't mean romhack. I took pictures of all the menu options i've seen so far and am explaining them by editing the pictures.

    Well, Temp-er, if you do get a translation done soon, maybe somebody else will write the patch. The U.S. release is "to be announced", so doing this might actually be worth it.

    lol, I played the demo for Metal Wolf Chaos, which hidden on an Xbox demo disc. It was pretty over the top, but was pretty fun.

    I really liked the first Tenchu, but all subsequent ones have been astonishingly bad (esp Tenchu 2 and the PSP one). The control method is so rigid and unresponsive, and for a NINJA game too?? But this one looks promising since it seems to take more of a Metal Gear approach to movement which is so much more intuitive.

    I've always been excited when a new Tenchu was released as I always hoped they fixed the bad controls, but always disappointed soon after. I'll give this a go though.

    Thanks for the translation too.

    The item menu just below where you select a mission (the one where Temp-er doesn't know what it does) allows you to make items with some of the raw materials that you gather. As you finish missions, you will unlock new stuff to make. For example, the first thing you can make is a riceball, and you need one of those bamboo sticks and some grass to make it. Also, shurikens require a single piece of rock, etc. When you are making stuff, you can sometimes make stuff really good and get stars on them. One star gives you a +1 to the item, making it more effective. I got 2 stars on a riceball, but I think you can probably go up to 3 stars.

    I still don't know what the menu under the kill animation menu is for, but it looks like it would be for special items or stuff that you've collected/unlocked, etc.

    The bottom right menu, with the ninjas in the back and stuff is to save your game (I think). It then gives you a menu with Iie (no) and hai (yes). If you pick no, you go back to the game, and if you pick yes, you quit to the main menu. So it just saves your game and asks you if you want to quit.
