Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword gameplay or Who moved the dragon-ninja cheese?
by Niero Gonzalez
Will Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword be the most awkward franchise sequel ever or will I have to eat my words with poison darts and Cocoa Puffs? I doubt it -- this new video suggests that the gameplay is the equivalent of eating chicken broth with a salad fork. Now that I see it in action, I also think that there's just something inately emasculating about controlling Ryu with a stylus.  I don't think I want to put that much fussing into stealth ninja asskicking; he looks like he's painting messy rainbows in his Pokemon sketchbook. Ninja Gayden, anyone?
 
[On sidenote, Ninja Gaiden II for the NES needs to get on the Virtual Console like ... right now. It is easily the best game in the series, fancypants versions included. My dusty old balls have spoken. All rise.]
 
Thanks Kayka!
