Here is an overview of the game, via W.R.K.S Games:

In Shinobi Rising, you play as a shinobi who must solve a murder mystery and discover the culprit behind the death of an innocent child heiress. Uncover clues and solve puzzles. Engage in stealth combat and use your ninja skills to defeat your enemies—or avoid them entirely. With stunning stylized graphics and an engaging storyline, Shinobi Rising is sure to keep gamers entertained and serve as a great introduction to our vibrant new game universe of Katana-Ra.

Shinobi Rising is the first PC game in the Katana-Ra Universe, where feudal Japanese inspiration is fused with futuristic cyberpunk. Shinobi Rising will be a 3D side-scroller built in Unreal Engine 5 and will feature stealth and detective style gameplay. The entire game will play out in one single night of time, where the main character must solve a murder mystery and find the real culprit behind the assassination of the young heiress to the Kata Clan.

Trailers and store pages will begin to roll out in late October. Gameplay trailers will be posted regularly in the leadup to release.
