Famitsu 360: Ninja Blade to get worldwide release plus other titbits [Update]

Wednesday, 28th January 2009 11:05 GMT By Mike


According to the latest issue of Famitsu 360, From Software’s Ninja Blade is set for a worldwide release.

Something must have got lost in Gaf‘s translation however, as that means it’s out tomorrow in Europe and the US tomorrow, which it clearly isn’t.

Other snippets show that a slim 360 could be in the works, the 360 version of the Dead Rising and Lost Planet sequels will have something extra, and Sega is planning some big titles other than Bayonetta for the console this year.

Also, as Blerk points out, Famitsu 360 reckons Persona 2 developer Atlus is developing for 360.

Update: Funnily enough, the Ninja Blade PAL box art has just been released which you can check out below. Maybe a surprise is in store after all?

    The PAL box art for Ninja Blade just popped up on GamesPress, which suggests that a release might be much sooner than we expected. How bizarre!

    And… Atlus. On 360. omg!

    “So, is this game supposed to be good then?”

    That’s a pretty ridiculous question. How are we meant to know if its any good if we haven’t played it?

    Some go download the demo and let us know what we think. Preferably someone *not* simply minded or genre-biased.

    Everyone seems to be getting quite excited about it. It’s hardly a big name title, and these sort of games usually have to do something right in order to get the internet masses talking about them. Can’t see any reason anybody would care about this game, unless p/reviews of it were very good.

    I hope it comes good, but the videos seem a bit too QTE heavy for my liking, and I don’t mind the odd bit of QTE.

    Are people getting excited about it? I thought the general opinion was ‘meh, it’s Ninja Gaiden with QTEs’.
