While release details on this stealthy, side-scroller from Klei Entertainment have been sparse, we were finally graced with a launch date of September 7th of this year for Mark of the Ninja. The price is still hiding in the shadows like a sneaky shinobi warrior, but since it's going to be an XBLA release, one can most likely expect a price tag of somewhere between $10-$15.
It's been a while since the ninja game sub-genre has seen a cool new approach like this one (we shan't speak of Ninja Gaiden here) and I for one will most likely be purchasing this one first-day. Already, I'm smitten not just with the amazing 2-D animations/artwork, but I'm stoked to play what looks like a genuine attempt at creating a solid, stealth, side-scroller. Yessir, I'm already setting aside some gold pieces for this one.
