Microsoft and FromSoftware announced today that Xbox 360 exclusive “Ninja Blade” is now shipping to retailers throughout North America, making it available in all regions worldwide. FromSoftware, well-known for their work on “Armored Core” and the “Tenchu” franchise, presents a fresh twist on the classic ninja legend with “Ninja Blade.” In this modern epic, ninjas fuse traditional skills with modern technology, and intense action and battle scenes take place atop modern-day Tokyo skyscrapers and building tops.
In “Ninja Blade,” gamers must guide Ken Ogawa to defend Tokyo, and ultimately humanity itself, from terrifying monsters and their genetically mutating disease. Armed with an extensive arsenal of specialized ninja weapons, tools and skills, such as Ninja Vision and Todomé Attack, players must fight insurmountable odds and once again bring peace and order to Tokyo. Players will find themselves living an action movie experience as they directly interact with in-game cut scenes through quick-time events scattered throughout integral parts of the storyline, making for fast-paced action and an interactive cinematic experience.
Fans are encouraged to visit www.stoptheinfected.com to check out a prequel manga (comic) created by VICE magazine that traces the missions that took place before current times, when Ken Ogawa and the G.U.I.D.E. team fought to contain the infected.
“Ninja Blade” has an estimated retail price of $59.99 and is rated ‘M’ for Mature.  For more information, head on over to http://www.xbox.com/en-CA/games/n/ninjablade/.
