The unannounced game will be created under a new intellectual property and is an online first-person action game with co-op support and PvP and PvE elements.

The events of the nameless project will take place in feudal Japan at a difficult time for it: the invaders have overthrown the current shogun, seized the throne and expanded their army, even at the expense of their own opponents.

    Project weapons include katana, short tanto, kusarigama, shuriken, kunai, and more

Players in the role of shinobi and kunoichi warriors, sent by their masters to the conquered state to search for artifacts of unprecedented power, must face the usurper’s henchmen and direct competitors.

The developers claim that users can jump onto city roofs and arrows sticking out of the walls, hide under the floors of wooden huts, climb pagodas, and sneak through temples and altars.
