Gaiden DS has "similarities" with 360 sequel, says Itagaki

Tomonobu Itagaki tells CVG that fans of the action series will spot similarities between the recently announced DS game and the full-blown 360 sequel.

During a recent interview, Ninja Gaiden head guy Tomonobu Itagaki revealed a lot about the DS version to CVG. When asked if the DS version will tie in with what we might see in Ninja Gaiden 2, Itagaki replied, "Well... I am personally overseeing the development of everything from the story through to the gameplay elements for both games, so if you're observant you may be able to extrapolate some similarities between the two, yes, and not just in the area of story."

I was under the impression that NG2 was not coming to the 360?

This is great news if it though as I loved NG1 on the original xbox.

Apologies if I'm missing something... a lot of the gaming sites these news posts link to are blocked by my works firewall meaning I often only get snippets of news rather than the full article.

Itagaki: There are a total of six Nintendo DS machines in my home. I only have three Xbox 360s! [Laughs.]
no ps3, no ps3 version, yet. =)

itagaki definitely loves himself some 360... i wonder if they took out that machine in the original that was an xbox statue, that filled up your life outside of han's bar? itagaki didn't even work on sigma... hopefully his love affair with the 360 continues, and hopefully he feels he really needs to upstage his apprentice that worked on sigma.
