Klei Entertainment's Mark of the Ninja is already one of the best reviewed games of the year and has found quite a large audience on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Now, more gamers will get the chance to enjoy the 2D ninja stealth platformer as the game has been confirmed for a release on Steam.

Mark of the Ninja also follows Klei's other 2D hits onto the digital distribution channel. The Shank games are popular sidescrollers focusing more on Devil May Cry-esque combos rather than stealth. All three games are riddled with Saturday Morning Cartoon stylized violence, tight controls, and oh-so-satisfying murder.

The game will be available on October 16th for $14.99. As it was published in cooperation with Microsoft Studios, don't get your hopes up for PSN release any time soon.
