Ninja Blade is among a list of free games being given away by Green Man Gaming and Playfire this weekend. It’s a truly bat-shit mental hack n’ slash game from Dark Souls developer From Software. It may not be the best brawler out there, but if you want a dose of fun with your gaming then you absolutely need to play it.

ND Games has revealed that it will bring From Software’s Ninja Blade to PC in October.
Already available for Xbox 360 the game includes quick-time events, on-rails sequences, platforming and what Eurogamer calls “extreme violence”.
Can’t go wrong with that.

The demo for Ninja Blade is now up on Xbox Live for Gold Members. Sorry Silvers, you’ll get yours later on.
The 360 exclusive will be hitting the UK and US April 3 and April 7 respectively.
Check out the first 11 minutes of the demo here.

The western Ninja Blade demo’s to be released on March 9, but Microsoft let us have it yesterday, being the benevolent soul that it is. Find a grab of the first 11 minutes after the break, including half of a whopping boss battle. Be warned: we’re quite bad at it.
The From Software actioner bears more than a passing resemblance to Ninja Gaiden, but doesn’t appear to suffer from the same camera horrors, which is nice. And it looks amazing, to be fair.
There’s lots of QTE in there, though, as you’ll know if you had a waz on the Japanese demo at the end of last year.
Take a look. It’s out in Europe on April 3.

From’s Ninja Blade will launch in the UK on April 7, Microsoft confirmed today, following a demo release on May 9.
Apparently the demo “will provide players with an engaging first look into the world of Ken Ogawa and a chance to battle the monster horde before the game hits store shelves in April.”
It’s all you can hope for. After the break.

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?

After the break. It’s pretty poor quality, but that shouldn’t stop you getting an idea of the frenetic pace of From Software’s Ninja Gaiden-alike.
Looks totally mental to us, especially when your ninja dude is whizzing down a tunnel with more than healthy amounts of motion blur going on.
Ninja Blade is out in Japan on Xbox 360 29th January. Europe still TBC.
Check it out.

For those of you can’t wait to get your hands on From Software’s Ninja Blade after looking at those shiny screenshots this morning, a Microsoft representative has told videogaming247.com that Ninja Blade is down for a Euro “Q1 2009″ release, so you’ll have to be patient.
There were reports of an English version of the game being ready as early as next month but Microsoft is sticking to its first quarter time frame.
Ninja Blade is released in Japan on January 29.

13 new screens of From Software’s 360 exclusive Ninja Blade have been unleashed on an unsuspecting public and they are full of high def shine.
Go see the glare over at Destructiod.
Ninja Blade is released on January 29, although we’re checking with MS to confirm is that date is applicable to everyone, and not just Japan.

After the break. Not being funny, but to say Ninja Gaiden was an “influence” on this is putting it mildly.
There are three videos there. The majority of the first one’s an inventory screen, from the look of it. The second one’s fighting. The third one’s the ninja sliding down the side of a building and fighting a massive spider while doing QTEs.
Seriously, his hat even looks the same. See for yourself. Thanks, Blerk.

IGN’s posted a chat with From Software producer Masanori Takeuchi about Ninja Blade, the 360 action title announced in Microsoft’s Japanese press conference this morning.
There’s quite a bit of detail in there: the playable ninja character’s called Ken, the game’s about 12 hours long and the team’s “definitely considering” a demo.
Fancy. Game’s out next spring.

A chap over at Neogaf‘s uncovered some new game titles while sniffing around on Microsoft’s site for Banjo shots, including what looks to be a new Viva Pinata game (shots here) and a Scene It? sequel. Given how watertight info on tomorrow’s Gamer’s Day has been so far, do die of shock if you see this lot announced tomorrow. Full list:
- Ninja Blade
- Scene It? 2
- Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise
