Pre-order Ninja Gaiden II, get a Ryu costume

Microsoft’s announced that the first 39,000 people to order Ninja Gaiden II from select – as yet unnamed – UK retailers will get a Ryu costume. We’re really not sure if this is like the Batman costume every had when they were about five years old, or if it’s a costume to dress up a “figurine”, or what. We suspect Microsoft’s happened on some jumbo job lot of comedy ninja suits and put two and two together.

Oh, we see. It’s a costume for in-game Ryu. Apparently if you miss the pre-order thing you’ll still be able to download the costumes from Live in July for 200 MS Points a go.

Which is nowhere near as good as a comedy ninja outfit. Think on, Microsoft.

Game’s out on June 6.
