Mindjack’s eclectic blend of macho men, mini-mechs, flight attendants, and monkeys also has ninjas. The ESRB leaked this little detail in its product description.
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a futuristic government agent who must uncover conspiracies related to secret "mind-hacking" research. Players traverse realistic urban environments and use grenades, rifles, and machine guns to shoot and kill a variety of enemies (e.g., human soldiers, ninjas, robot drones, robotic gorillas). Enemies cry out in pain and emit large splashes of blood when hit, and players can continue to shoot dead bodies, resulting in more blood splashes. Civilian bystanders can also be killed during the frenetic gun battles. Language such as "bastard," "b*tch," and "sh*t" appears in the dialogue.
While the ESRB doesn’t explicitly say players can mind-control ninjas, the premise of Mindjack is hacking into enemies to control them. We’re expecting ninja versus monkey and ninja versus mecha battles in Square Enix’s third person shooter now.
