SAN JOSE, Calif., (February 22, 2012) – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen is now available in North America for the PlayStation®Vita system. Players will step into the role of Zen, a master ninja, through a thrilling dynamic 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.
“It’s a thrilling, gripping adventure that will enthrall action fans on their PlayStation®Vita for a long time to come,” said Carlson Choi, VP of Marketing for NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “The team at ACQUIRE has delivered an intricate tale of swords and assassins that we’re proud to be releasing across North America.”
