CVG begins Ninja Gaiden II week with promise of exclusive material

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 7 April 2008 08:46 GMT

Here. To kick off a week’s worth of Ninja Gaiden II-related content, CVG’s posted a feature on the history of Ryu Hayabusa and a promise that those of you that look back at 5pm will get “first details and screens on a brand new level” from the game.


For the uninitiated Ninja Gaiden and dragon ninja Ryu Hayabusa first appeared in the arcade in 1988 before taking its 2D action-platform gameplay to NES, SNES and then Sega’s Master System. But it’d be 16 years on from its debut that the series would make the giant leap to 3D. In 2004 Team Ninja unleashed Ninja Gaiden onto the unsuspecting Xbox fanbase. The result proceeded to garner rapturous applause that echoed around the globe.

Ninja Gaiden II’s looking pretty damn spanky, so be sure to keep an eye out for the new shots.

The game releases in June.
