What is it with guards going to investigate a dead body? If my buddy suddenly turned up dead, and it looked like he was killed by a ninja or some guy whose name rhymes with “Pam Disher”, I would turn around and run in the other direction. Hopefully the guards in Mark of the Ninja don’t do that, since one of the achievements has to do with luring them to their death. As always, this list is courtesy of the honorable folks at Xbox 360 Achievements.
Mark of the Ninja is a side-scrolling ninja stealth game that will be releasing on Xbox Live Arcade this summer, and is being developed by Klei, who worked on the Shank series. Interested now? I am.
