Budget ninja-themed DSiWare game gets a sequel



3:00 AM on 09.06.2010

Less than two weeks ago, I reviewed G.G Series Ninja Karakuri Den, a two-dollar microgame that is part of a Japanese series of budget downloadables. It was a decent game that could have used a little more zest, which is why I'm pleased to discover that a sequel is on the way.

From the trailer, Ninja Karakuri Den 2 keeps the auto-jumping gameplay of the original and adds a couple new moves, enemies, and a female second character. You are still offing samurai and ninja, but now you must contend with a mechanical Hindu statue boss with laser turrets. Hopefully, there are more surprises beyond what's been shown.

If the G.G Series performs well enough here, I don't see why this game won't eventually get localized.
