Marvelous truly knows how to market Senran Kagura Burst

Last week, Marvelous revealed Senran Kagura Burst, the sequel the hit 3DS brawler starring school-aged masturbation fodder. And what goes better with horny adolescent fap material if not a box of tissues? On April 28 and 29, ...

PAX: Mark of the Ninja is a REAL ninja game
by Tony Ponce

Ninjas may be one of the most popular character tropes in videogames after zombies and robots, but in all honesty, most of them suck at the one thing they are supposed to be good at. Ryu Hayabusa may strut around like a big ol' badass, but the trail of severed limbs and blood he leaves in his wake doesn't exactly scream "stealthy."

Klei Entertainment, the developer of the Shank series, is putting ninjas back in the shadows where they belong. Mark of the Ninja for XBLA has a particularly large hurdle in front of it, however, in that it is played from a 2D perspective. Thankfully, the company has done an excellent job of re-introducing players to the stealth genre with familiar tools and elements from its 3D forebears.

Preview: Ninja Gaiden 3 is bloody fun
by Dale North

I was in Tokyo last year for the unveiling of Ninja Gaiden 3 to a select group of press. It certainly looked great, but some in attendance were worried about Team Ninja's changes to the tried-and-true formula. The latest in the series was to bring a new focus to storytelling, with the hardened ninja assassin finally realizing that he's killed bazillions of people. Others were concerned about the team's move to make the series more accessible with an easier play mode. Series fans were worried that Team Ninja had changed too much.

Worry not, ninja. I've been enjoying some early code this past week or so, and I can tell you that you're probably going to love Ninja Gaiden 3. Yes, things are a bit different this time around, but the series' roots are still here under the changes.

A LOT of ninjas are in Naruto Ultimate Storm Generations

A whopping seventy-two of them, in fact, and that's just counting the playable characters. The number swells considerably when you look at support-only characters and move-set variations on the same character (there are s...

Metal Gear Rising renamed, now developed by Platinum photo
Metal Gear Rising renamed, now developed by Platinum
by Jonathan Holmes

The VGAs are just a few hours away, and we already have our first massive announcement from the show, leaked for your viewing pleasure. According to this trailer spotted on NeoGAF, Metal Gear Solid Rising is now called Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and is being developed by Platinum Games. 

I just watched the trailer, and I'm left with mixed feelings. I've enjoyed just about every game that Platinum has released so far, but I'm not sure if their "we're shameless and gratuitious and we know it" style is what I want in a Metal Gear Solid game. Seeing a man continue to hack away at another man's body with a katana after he's already separated his head and shoulders from his torso may work in MadWorld, but I'm not sure if it makes sense for Metal Gear, a series that I've always relied on for its capacity to be quiet and understated.

One thing is for sure, no one is going to accuse Revengeance of being just another Metal Gear rehash. For better or worse, this game is going to be different.

Hands-on: Ninja Gaiden 3's single and multiplayer modes photo
Hands-on: Ninja Gaiden 3's single and multiplayer modes
by Alessandro Fillari

As a long time fan of the Ninja Gaiden series, I was a bit skeptical when I learned Team Ninja was looking to reestablish the series. After it's last showing at TGS left many confused and a bit worried, me included, the developers have taken steps to clear things up and let fans know that the series hasn't forgotten its roots.

While fans may still be worried that the developers have taken the series in a direction that will compromise what Ninja Gaiden is known for I can say that the latest is just as fast, furious, and daring as it's predecessors after spending some time with the single-player and multiplayer modes, and even trying out the hard mode setting.

Ezio gets all stop-motiony in this fan animation

Stop-motion animation will never die, and the world is a better place because of that! In this wonderfully choreographed video, Ezio from Assassin's Creed goes toe-to-toe with... ummm... uhhhh... the guy from Tenchu? I dunno... maybe? Whatevs, some ninja dude who gets his sh*t ruined. It's all good fun, so no biggie. Assassin's Creed Revelations Fan Tribute: Assassin VS Ninja! [YouTube]

Senran Kagura video gets jiggly with it

I'm sure there is a case to be made about upcoming booby ninja high school 3DS game Senran Kagura's being a legitimately solid title with plenty of action to satisfy the needs of the brawler crowd. This video, though? Doesn't make that case. 3DS Senran Kagura Changing Room [YouTube]

TGS: Shinobido 2 gives ninjas a home on the PS Vita
by Allistair Pinsof

You can be forgiven for glancing at Shinobido and presuming it to be a Tenchu knock-off. After you stop raging and consider it looks kind of neat, you may do a quick Google search and discover it's made by the same developer, Acquire. The game is being promoted as a hybrid of our favorite ninja stealth series and Acquire’s other flagship series, Way of the Samurai.

Among the other PS Vita titles, Shinobido 2: Tales of the Ninja stands out due to its clever use of the system's touch functionality and its Muromachi-era Japan setting.

Senran Kagura: Schoolgirls and boobs unite the world

At first glance, Senran Kagura may look like yet another borderline-pedophile fantasy from the depths of a Japanese subculture's disturbing preoccupation with "youth", but according to producer Kenichiro Takaki, it's not...
