On a recent trip to Seattle IGN had the distinct pleasure of seeing a new area of Ninja Gaiden 2. Tomonobu Itagaki was on-hand to give IGN a demo of the game and answer some of the questions that they've been dying to ask since the game was last put on display.
The short game demo took place at what was presumably the very beginning of the game. Ryu found himself in a familiar setting: on the balconies of a building in Sky City Tokyo. Aside from Sky City, Team Ninja has yet to announce any other definite locations but Itagaki stated that the series is making a return to its roots with a slew of real world locations building to a final showdown in an underworld filled with demons. In the demo, a detailed metropolis loomed in the background as Ryu immediately met with waves of Black Spider Ninja Clan. The metal claws, scythe, and Dragon Sword we saw in previous demos were back on display along with the bow, which is featured prominently in our new gameplay movie.
