The preview build (that by the way was the TGS 2008 build) began over the skies of a futuristic Tokyo. Our protagonist, Ken Ogawa who's tasked with eliminating a zombie outbreak of sorts jumped off his plane plummeting to Earth with the style and grace most Ninjas exude. Thinking that was a long-ass cutscene I started sipping on my coffee only to be quickly prompted by the game to hammer away on the X key so that Ken could slice incoming enemies on his way down."
