Tecmo wants everyone to try the DS Download Station demo in the meantime.

NINJA GAIDEN® DRAGON SWORD TO SHIP MARCH 2008

The must have action game is scheduled to ship next year

TORRANCE, Calif. December 19, 2007— Tecmo® announced that Ninja Gaiden® Dragon Sword, the highly anticipated action game for the Nintendo DS™, will be shipping in March of 2008. With the intuitive use of the DS stylus, Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword will let players control Master Ninja Ryu Hayabusa like never before.

Developed by Executive Producer Tomonobu Itagaki and the Team NINJA® development studio, Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword features beautifully rendered environments, fast Ninja Gaiden-style action, numerous enemies, and a new story. Various directional movements and taps with the DS stylus will activate Ryu Hayabusa to run, jump, attack, and cast Ninpo (Ninja Magic). Certain combinations of movements will allow players to perform special attacks like the "Izuna Drop" and the "Cicada Slash" which were made famous in the Ninja Gaiden console games.

"Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword brings a new level of gaming action to the Nintendo DS," says Yoh Watanabe, Tecmo’s Marketing Manager. "There’s currently a demo available on the DS Download Station and I urge everyone to try it out and you’ll know what I mean."

As long as you don't spam every thread about it with "I hate those controls"...

Will this game have a touch screen mini-game involving Ayane?

The last time Itagaki had such nasty thoughts he also thought "naah, let's put that into a separate game".

The last thing established games need are mini-games, there have been enough good games gone lost to mini-game vortexes. Anyway, this game is going to great.
