Ryu Hayabusa's back, and not only does he have the fate of his Dragon Ninja clan bearing down on his shoulders this time, he also needs to prevent the destruction of the entire human race. Genshin, the leader of the Black Spider clan and arch-rival of Joe Hayabusa (Ryu's father), is on the warpath and is desperate to wipe out the Hayabusa's dragon lineage once and for all. So what does this mean? Well, to be blunt.....BLOODSHED! Lots and lots of crimson bloodshed (with a dash of Ninpo magic). If you're a fan of the type of combat seen in films such as Shogun Assasin and American Ninja, Ninja Gaiden II is right up your street.
