New Ninja Gaiden 2 gameplay video is predictably rad

Has the adoration of ninjas and ninja culture become a cliché yet? There's a tingling part of our writers' sense that says "Yes, absolutely." But how are we supposed to stifle the national boner we have for ninjas when new clips of Ninja Gaiden 2 are being released? Especially ones like the above video that show Ryu Hayabusa (again, pardon the cliché) flipping out and killing people with Wolverine claws?
