Buds of evil flower in the darkness as the land of Lord Gohda experiences a short springtime of peace. The fruits of corruption taste sweet to Gohda's statesman, Nasu, when Echigoya's son, Tokubei, invites him to the renovated Echigoya estate for dinner. Tokubei plants the seeds by loaning money to innocent villagers and then, when payments aren't met, abducting their daughters to sell them as slaves. Nasu is asked to "overlook" the process. You must punish the evil merchant.
Punish the Evil Merchant!
Objectives: Find the key to open the gate. Enemies will become alert when they spot dead bodies. Hunt for ninja rebirth items.
You begin just outside a building that essentially serves as a wall between you and an inner courtyard. You could patrol this outer perimeter and find several guards or take the quick route to the inner courtyard by using your grappling hook to climb onto the building's roof. Select your grappling hook and ascend to the roof. Remain crouched and face the center of the inner courtyard. Spot the patrolling guard down below. When he's moving away from you, perform a stealth drop onto the ground, then approach the guard from behind and perform a stealth kill.
Enter through the door behind the guard's patrol route. As you search this building, you're shown three guards having a grand ole time. These guards are enjoying themselves so much they may neglect the key that's resting on the floor near them. You need this key to open a locked gate into the next area. But there's a way to bypass these three guards, the key, and the gate.
