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.
