Ryu returns in March, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword dated

By Spencer . December 20, 2007 . 12:42pm

Get your sword stylus ready, Tecmo plans to release Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword this March in North America. The stylus slashing control sounds unusual, but it’s fairly intuitive. You tap enemies to throw shuriken and draw lines to emulate sword swings. I gave Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword a spin months ago a TGS and the […]

Watch – Ninja Gaiden 2 extended trailer

By Spencer . December 19, 2007 . 9:19pm

I was going to post an embedded video here, but the longer cut of the Day of Ninja trailer is something you should see in full screen. It starts with Ryu attacking enemies by bouncing on walls and later he brutally battles a spider-like monster. For better or worse there is a lot of blood […]

Microsoft buys up billboard space in Japan

By Spencer . October 30, 2007 . 2:08pm

Since Halo 3 is out the door, Microsoft is beginning to push Lost Odyssey and Ninja Gaiden II in Japan. Outside above Softmap in Akihabara is an eye catching billboard ad with both games. Will an advertisement like this do anything? Maybe. It’s in the place where gamers shop in Tokyo, but it’s not nearly […]

By Spencer . October 26, 2007 . 4:46pm

In awesome, but predictable news the ESRB has a rating up for Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom as a Wii game. This suggests we will be seeing Ninja Gaiden III on the North America virtual console shop relatively soon. Ryu gained a few new abilities in this, notably climbing on horizontal wires […]

By Spencer . September 12, 2007 . 3:53pm

Team Ninja is indeed working on a sequel to Ninja Gaiden and it's coming out next year exclusively for the Xbox 360. The news is a little surprising since Team Ninja just released Ninja Gaiden Sigma for the Playstation 3. Perhaps an enhanced version will appear on Sony's turf in the future. Along with the […]

500,000 copies of Ninja Gaiden Sigma in circulation

By Spencer . August 16, 2007 . 11:10am

Temco seems amped about Ninja Gaiden Sigma. They just announced that their first Playstation 3 game shipped out 500,000 copies worldwide. Not bad news at all considering Ninja Gaiden Sigma has only been out for two months in Japan and around a month everywhere else. It’s even better news considering that Ninja Gaiden Sigma really […]

Manga style cutscenes in Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword

By Spencer . August 7, 2007 . 12:32pm

Famitsu has a few new pictures of Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword and this time they aren’t of the stylus-swinging action. Instead of using character portraits and text boxes like most Nintendo DS games, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword looks more like a living graphic novel. It’s a fitting idea since you hold the DS like a […]

Ryu Hayabusa’s training sword

By Spencer . June 27, 2007 . 3:47pm

Gamesniped who always has a multitude of interesting video game auctions found someone is selling one of three wooden swords signed by Itakagi, the creator of Ninja Gaiden. The custom sword was a prize in the Ninja Gaiden Master Tournament Tecmo and you had to be in the top three to earn it. Remember how […]

Watch: Real life Rachel playing Ninja Gaiden Sigma

By Spencer . June 17, 2007 . 1:24pm

At Eidos’ London Event they brought over a working build of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, which features Rachel as a playable character. CVG was at the event and demoing the new PS3 character was… uh… Rachel, more accurately a model paid to cosplay as her. Somehow they convinced the model to play as herself, but from […]

In a few weeks here comes Ninja Gaiden Sigma

By Spencer . June 4, 2007 . 4:25am

Tecmo has Ninja Gaiden Sigma scheduled to come out in North America and Japan later this month. It’s a remake of Ninja Gaiden Black for the Xbox, which was a remake of Ninja Gaiden (so… it’s a remake of a remake?) with the Hurricane Packs distributed via Xbox Live. There are some new features to […]

Ninja Gaiden II coming to the Virtual Console

By Spencer . May 22, 2007 . 9:58am

The ESRB posted up a listing for Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos as a Wii game. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since Tecmo released Ninja Gaiden on the Virtual Console last week, but it looks like Tecmo might be rolling out the sequel soon. While Tecmo is selling each Ninja Gaiden […]
