Microsoft Kicking 2009 Off With Ninja Blade?

Gears of War 2, Lips, and Banjo-Kazooie are out the door and Halo Wars won't be coming until March. So, what will Microsoft bring to Xbox 360 owners between now and Halo Wars?

Maybe Ninja Blade.

From Software will have their "dramatic action game" ready for Japan on January 29. Microsoft will be publish it in other regions sort of like how they handled Tenchu Z and Project Sylpheed. An official date has not been announced, but Gamestop says Ninja Blade will be in stores on February 3. While this is just a retail rumor it's plausible since February 3 is a few days after Ninja Blade launches in Japan.

Ninja Blade is an entirely different beast from Ninja Gaiden. Unfortunately, the two games sound a little too much alike. Ninja Gaiden is known for its brutal difficulty and in the future Ninja Blade will be remembered for its sluggish enemies, mutant spiders, and quick time events.

This must be what is going to take Ninja Gaiden's place. We'll see but I'm not going to hold out for this game.

From Software guys... Do not get your hopes up for this one. Better not to expect anything and maybe get surprised.

This game does look good, I wanna see gameplay videos before passing judgment. All this FMV stuff always looks tight.

Also waiting for Star Ocean..early on

That's a cruel way to end the article.

"Ninja Blade will be know for it sluggish enemies."

I think it looks interesting, but I don't think it will become a franchise, from what they've shown it just doesn't have that franchise fell to it, but I guess we'll see in Feb.

Feb. is going to be packed. Street Fighter 4, Killzone 2, Ninja Blade, Splinter Cell (rumored, but I doubt it), F.E.A.R. 2.
