Developer - Klei Entertainment
Publisher - Microsoft Studios
Platform - XBLA Exclusive
Release Date - Later this year (2012)
Genre - 2D stealth action game
Hot off the heels of Shank 2, Klei Entertainment has announced its next project. Mark of the Ninja is coming to Xbox Live Arcade later this year.
The 2D stealth action game features a similar art style to that of Shank, albeit a bit darker. Although it looks similar, the video establishes a slowed-down pace for the gameplay. Its ninja hero navigates a modern environment, sets traps, distracts enemies, grapples between walls, dangles from objects, and clings to vertical surfaces. It also seems hiding in the shadows could play an important role in Mark of the Ninja.
Klei's next project will be published by Microsoft this summer, which places it in the same release window as the annual Summer of Arcade promotion.
