Playing as martial arts master General Loh, you’re thrown into the middle of this bitter war armed only with your deadliest weapon: your fists. Fight your way through waves of enemies and towering bosses with lethal attacks, learn new skills to take down even the toughest opponent and see if you have what it takes to complete the frantic challenge modes. If going it alone is too much, then team up with a friend in co-op mode or show off your killer moves in the Versus Mode.

From the award-winning studio that brought you Shank, Mark of the Ninja is a game about finesse, manipulation, and sacrifice.
