Ninja Gaiden II in its current form seems certain to attract an "Adult Only" (AO) rating in the U.S., which would effectively ban it from release on Xbox 360 because US retailers refuse to carry or sell AO-rated titles. GamePro sat down with Ninja Gaiden II producer Yoshifuru Okamoto to discuss the game's glaring violence and the concern of possible AO-rating.
Okamoto also revealed that Rachel, the big-breasted, fan-favorite heroine from the first Ninja Gaiden game, is gone in the sequel. "This time we have a new heroine in place of Rachel," Okamoto said. Her name remains a secret.
"But she will have large breasts," he said.
