Put down that Dragon Sword and peel off that ninja mask; despite a heretofore unexplained absence of the Ninja Gaiden 2 demo outside of Japan, you won't be forced to make do with your own ninja action. Xbox Live gatekeeper Major Nelson gives us a demonstration of real ultimate power by cracking enough skulls to get to the bottom of the mystery: the Ninja Gaiden 2 demo will be released worldwide (except Germany, verzeihung) at 5am tomorrow, Joystiq Time. Until then, let X3F take you on a tour of the Japanese demo to satisfy your ninja-fueled bloodlust, okay?

Update: Major Nelson has updated with an apology and a note: the demo will be available everywhere except India, Germany, US or Canada. (Via X3F)
