Nintendo has revealed that Mark of the Ninja: Remastered will be sliding out of the shadows and onto the Switch on 9th October.

Despite that release date coming up very soon indeed, it's been quite a while since we've seen any new announcements regarding the title. We first heard about Klei Entertainment's side-scrolling, stealth-orientated action game coming to Switch back in March this year, with Nintendo promoting the critically acclaimed title across its social media channels, but we've heard little else until now.

Thankfully, Nintendo has shared another batch of info for the game to put our minds at ease. As well as featuring remastered visuals, audio, cutscenes and effects, Mark of the Ninja: Remastered will include an additional story level, a new character, additional items, a 'new game plus' mode, and even a developer commentary. The game is said to "offer a true stealth experience, putting you directly in the garb of a silent ninja assassin".

We've gathered some screenshots for you down below, but be aware that these are taken from the Steam version of the game.

The game received heaps of praise when it arrived on other platforms, currently holding 90+ scores on Metacritic and has received 'overwhelmingly positive' user reviews on Steam. Naturally, we're excited to see this one arrive on Switch and we're sure a lot of you lovely readers are, too.
