Picture the scene: There’s blood and gore everywhere, a limbless enemy ninja is dragging himself about using only his chin, a demon’esque beast hovers above, shooting fire balls out of it’s bum, and there are impossibly busty maidens coming out the wazoo! Nope, I’m not talking about what happened to me last Friday night, I’m talking about Ninja Gaiden. Although, it’s a pretty close comparison.
Ninja Gaiden is unquestionably one of the most unforgiving Ninja related games on the market, but definitely one of the most enjoyable. You play as Ryu Hayabusa, leader of the Dragon Ninja Clan, as he takes on all manner of evildoers and beasties in an effort to save the world, and generally kicks ass.
For those of you who are familiar with the series, and were awesome enough to reach the end of Ninja Gaiden 2 on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, you may have noticed that a continuation was hinted at, and finally, something has surfaced…
Having only just got around to finishing Ninja Gaiden 2 last Friday, I’m almost spooked out by the fact that this has just been announced, but it’s definitely going to be on my preorder list!
