We recently came across some fresh screens for our most anticipated Ninja game of the year (and no, we're not talking about Ninja Reflex, silly). We're really impressed with some of the cutscene artwork in Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword, and we're salivating as we wait for the game's March release date...

We're not only excited to give this game a whirl because of the already-mentioned amount of...

As if the news of Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword being delayed until next March wasn't disappointing enough (news that was super-officially confirmed by a Tecmo press release today, by the way), the boxart for the game is ... well, not necessarily bad, but certainly underwhelming. Not ninjatastic. It...

You'll be flipping out and killing people on the go this March when Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword –Team Ninja's portable ninja simulator – slashes its way onto the DS. Tecmo announced the March release window today, but failed to give a specific date. So, uh, yeah ... For more on Dragon S...

Click image to enlarge We're fairly certain these smiling people are allies of Ryu's, as we're sure any enemy of a ninja has no ability to smile, often cowering in dark corners and crying themselves to sleep as they think of nothing but their impending doom. That's just life. The life of a ninja'...

Getting out to a download station is hard work. First we have to apply for an exit permit from our cruel overlords at Joystiq, then we have to put on gobs and gobs of sun block (SPF 8,273, because of our incredibly pale skin). As if that weren't enough, there are also dangers to navigate in the wild...

It should come as no surprise to all of you out there in Reader Land that we're already sold on Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword. We're going to pick it up the second it hits retail shelves, no doubt about it. That's why we can appreciate this video, as poorly filmed as it is. Because it is nothing but a...

Tomonobu Itagaki has been a busy man, ever since he revealed his fan favorite franchise Ninja Gaiden would be seeing an iteration on the DS in Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword and a sequel on the Xbox 360. He's conducted lots of interviews about the DS game since then, answering the same question as to wh...

The non-disclosure agreements have just expired on what was shown at last week's Nintendo of America Media Summit; naturally, within seconds the Internet has become flooded with information about new games. Rather than post each trailer individually, we've decided to embed the newest DS trailers fr...

Why, hello there, Ryu Hayabusa. It's been a while since we've seen you outside of the same old recycled screens. We were starting to worry, but here you are again, looking very, uh ... ninja-ish. And awesome. Did we mention that? Our favorite ninja hero was featured in the latest (Chinese?) Famitsu...

Itagaki was kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule of making great games and shopping for leather to speak with GameTrailers about Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword. Of course, they grilled him on just why he would go with the DS instead of the PSP (how many times must this man answer thi...
