Klei Entertainment Reveals Mark of the Ninja

By Michelle Balsan, 4 years ago
Klei Entertainment, the makers of Shank and http://www.trueachievements.com/Shank-2-xbox-360.htm, have just released a new teaser for their upcoming XBLA title, Mark of the Ninja.

Now, we could go ahead and just link you to the video, but that would rob you of the fun part of the reveal. See, in order to actually view the video, you have to participate in a brief text adventure that will give you some insight on how you'd handle a stealth situation if you were a ninja.

We don't know too much about Mark of the Ninja other than it'll promote stealth over the wanton violence featured in Klei's other titles. We also know it will debut this summer and, given that Microsoft is producing the title, it's an XBLA exclusive. As we know more, we'll be sure to let you know!

I see my calls for more stealth have been answered once again. :D

Edit: Looks cool, I hope it more stealth game than platformer though.

I just did the text adventure and saw the video, it ties in well together. Looks like this could be a great title.

Speaking of text adventures, they should make an HD remake of Zork. Maybe put all the text in cursive or something.Yeah I said it.

I've always loved Ninjas and Stealth. If the game is 700 Micro$oft Points or less, I'll get it...

Stealth is one of the few genres that really doesn't get much love on the 360, wonder how it will turn out as well as sell.
You seem a little furious...

There's no way a Dreamcast port will be a Summer of Arcade title.

Sweet, a new XBLA exclusive!
This gives me a 2D Sly Cooper/Metal Gear vibe, I like it.

First 2D stealth game ever?
