Mark of the Ninja trailer shows how you'll kill from the shadows

Stealth is getting pretty popular these days, but it's not much like the old stealth titles you might remember. Splinter Cell has become something else entirely, opting for a more action-oriented approach. While Hitman seems to be taking a similar path. So it's refreshing to see a game like Mark of the Ninja go back to stealth's basics: plotting your attack from the shadows, then executing with perfect precision.

Mark of the Ninja comes from Klei Entertainment, the talented souls behind the Shank games. While those games weren't completely spectacular, they definitely showed promise. Particularly in the wide array of combat options and the beautiful animation. So we've got high hopes.

There's no set release date currently available for Mark of the Ninja besides "TBA 2012," but you can check out our E3 preview to learn a lot more.

    So I guess it's XBLA only? -.-; Wishing in the back of my mind it's not, but "Microsoft studios" makes it look pretty clear. This looks like the best ninja stealth since the MGS2 VR missions.

    What about Tenchu man. Don't forget about that series. They are easily the most authentic ninja games around. Also I'm pretty sure Mark of the Ninja is coming to PSN as well.

    I thought Wrath of Heaven on the PS 2 was fairly good. It was an improvement over the PS 1 games in some ways at least.

    This certainly looks promising, if they can keep up a good pace with a nice variety of environments and different "hunting" conditions it could be pretty great. If it has a simple but compelling story,(Unlike Shank's... ugh.) that would help too.
