Shinobido 2 Revenge of Zen is the sequel to the previous opus, featuring the series’ trademark stealth gameplay with the addition of new stylish ninja moves and a dynamic storyline. The story is set six months after the events of Shinobido: Way of the Ninja, with the Utakata region once again at the centre of the storm and embroiled in a civil war involving the mysterious Magic Mirror.

Saved by the Asuka Ninja clan of Utakata, Zen makes up his mind to live as a ninja and begins a perilous journey in search of revenge.
