First 30: Aragami 2 - This game makes me long for a Tenchu remake!

Aragami 2

Aragami 2 is a third-person stealth game where you play as an assassin with the power to control the shadows. Join the shadow clan and fight the invader armies to protect your people. You are one of the last elite warriors of your kin, the Aragami. Victims of a supernatural affliction which corrodes the body and devours the mind, the Aragami control Shadow Essence - a mystical power that grants the ability to control the shadows. With this power the Aragami carry out their tasks and quests - assignments made all along the valley to ensure the subsistence of the village and to free the Aragami enslaved by the invader armies.

Fun fact: The game dev says that Aragami 2 is everything they wanted the first installment to be.

While playing Aragami 2, Tenchu was on my mind... big time. I look forward to playing more of this game, but... it's a bittersweet experience because I would love a Tenchu remake. FromSoftware needs to hand the IP over to Acquire and let Takuma Endo do something with it. Sekiro stemmed from the dev going in another direction with what was going to be a successor to Tenchu. They're sleeping on what could be an amazing remake, and it's good to see Sekiro... but Tenchu deserves another chance for being... awesome.
