Continuing the onslaught of PS Vita launch games, Namco Bandai today shipped Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen in North America for Sony’s new handheld system. In Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, players step into the role of a master ninja and play through a storyline of betrayal and intrigue as he scales sheer walls, leaps across rooftops and sneaks silently towards prey to expertly dispatch foes with his razor-sharp blade.
Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen finds the region of Utakata in the grip of a vicious civil war. Zen soon finds himself betrayed by his companions and left for dead after his beloved’s murder. Saved by the Asuka Ninja clan, Zen chooses to live the life of a ninja and sets out to find those who wronged him, where each mission brings him closer to resolution while delicately swaying the balance of power in the war. Using the touchscreen and rear touch pad, players will be able to mimic ninja actions such as throwing ninja shuriken and targeting grapple points.
Players wanting to get a taste of Zen’s deadly assassin skills in Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, can do so by checking out the free demo soon available on the PlayStation Store. Additional premium downloadable content in which players will battle against otherworldly creatures and bring down their eight fearsome bosses will also be available post-launch, offering even more satisfying kills after players complete the main game.
