The sexy unemployed Ninja returns in Izuna 2 for the DS

I don’t know how I almost missed this! Atlus announced yesterday that Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja will be returning to the DS later this year. Izuna 2 is the sequel to the original game that came out last year. In Izuna, you played as a Ninja who was fired after her boss figured that Ninjas have become obsolete. Psh, whatever.

The sequel is looking to offer more content, a deeper combat system and a richer role-playing experience. There will also be a new tag team battling system that you can use with anyone in Izuna’s party. Check out the debut trailer above and the first screens of the game in the gallery below. Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja should be out July 22 for the Nintendo DS.

Oh, and be sure to read the press release here for once, after the jump. It’s filled with so much sexual innuendo that it made me hard while writing all of this up. Seriously.
