Western Ninja Blade demo – first 11 minutes in video

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 3 March 2009 12:50 GMT


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.
