Shinobi 3DS trailer looks hot, hot, hot, hot! (Update)

[Update: God damn it, SEGA! We have been asked to take this video down because apparently it's wrong or something. Because I am nice and honorable like Jesus Christ, I am complying. Apparently a better trailer is coming next week. It better shit gold!]

Here's the debut trailer for Shinobi 3DS, which has quite easily shot up to the top of my 3DS "DO WANT" list. The video pays tribute to the series, starting with 1987's debut title and ending with this nostalgic portable trip. 

Fans of the series will note just how old school this thing looks. Despite the 3D models, the game definitely looks like its retro brethren, and that's no bad thing. I noticed some people have complained about the graphics, but they don't look bad to me -- just heavily stylized. They look better in motion than in screens, that's for damn sure. 

So yeah, SEGA can go right ahead and insert this game into me.
