Tenchu Slices Its Way Into The Mobile Gaming Arena

Digital Bridges brings shuriken-hurling action to mobile phones with the release of Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven

London UK, 23rd February 2005: Digital Bridges, a world leader in the creation and distribution of mobile entertainment solutions, together with mobile games developer TKO Software, Inc, today announced the launch of the highly anticipated action title Tenchu: Wrath of HeavenTM on leading wireless network operators and portals across Europe.

Tenchu: Wrath of HeavenTM puts gamers behind the mask of one the world's most deadliest ninja assassins, Ayame. Armed with a variety of moves and weapons, players guide Ayame through different levels, using authentic ninja weapons such sleep darts, exploding ninja stars, grappling hooks and smoke bombs. To earn the most points, however, aspiring ninjas must use the deadliest skill of all, stealth. Players must remain unseen and kill foes by sneaking up from behind, while collecting secret items and sparing the innocent -- only then will ninja greatness be achieved.

Will Golby, TKO Managing Director, Wireless Games commented, "With Tenchu: Wrath of HeavenTM, we are bringing one of the most enjoyable game titles ever to a distribution partner, which has done a huge amount for mobile gaming."

Paul Maglione, Senior Vice President of Publishing and Marketing for Digital Bridges commented: "The launch Tenchu: Wrath of HeavenTM of adds a well-loved, classic title with proven game play appeal to our rollout of premium branded mobile games launching this Spring."
