I just saw on g4tv that Ninja Gaiden 2 is confirmed for a 2008 release! Also they showed some screens of Ryu standing in a white purgatorylike setting with swords sticking in the ground everywhere around him. Ryu was not wielding the infamous dragon blade tho, he was wielding this evil looking grim reaper style sickle.
I dunno about everyone else but I am siked to play this! read
