Ninja Gaiden invades Dynasty Warriors

It's the moment we've all been waiting for. The Tecmo/Koei merger has finally resulted in the inevitable crossover between Ninja Gaiden and Dynasty Warriors, with Ryu Hayabusa slated to appear as an unlockable character in the PS3 version of Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce.

Tecmo will be returning the favor by allowing for unlockable Zhao Yun and Sun Shang Xiang costumes in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Currently, only the PS3 will be enjoying the crossover chicanery, with the Xbox 360 version of Strikeforce getting Nu Wa from Warriors Orochi 2 instead of Ryu. Who the Hell cares about that?

Not quite the auspicious merging of intellectual properties that I'd imagined, but it's something. Can't wait to make Ryu kick Lu Bu's arse.
