From Software teased their cinematic action game, Ninja Blade, was coming in “early 2009”. They meant really early 2009 since Ninja Blade is scheduled to come out in Japan on January 29. Don’t go into Ninja Blade expecting Otogi 3: Demons in the City, From Software’s Xbox 360 game is totally different. There is a scene where you leap into the air, but that’s just so Ken can slice dragons while he’s falling. If the Tokyo Game Show demo is any indication of what the final game will be like expect a lot of quick time events.
Microsoft is taking care of Ninja Blade in other territories and they haven’t announced a release date yet. However, since Ninja Blade will be done in January and Microsoft has yet to reveal their plan for 2009 there is a chance Ninja Blade will arrive in North America this winter.
