GamesRadar has bagged first dibs on revealing three new Ninja Gaiden II characters - Alexei, Muramasa and Zedonius. Gaiden fans will remember Muramasa as the weapons master and item seller that's featured since the series was resurrected by Team Ninja, while Alexei and Zedonius are all new and nasty foes. Get acquainted with them in the movies below or marvel at them in a state of pictorial stasis in our Ninja Gaiden II image gallery.
One of the four Greater Fiends, and Ruler of Lightning, his hatred of humankind knows no bounds. He has taken the city of New York in his evil grasp and waits perched upon the Statue of Liberty, challenging Ryu Hayabusa to come and face him.
One of the four Greater Fiends and Ruler of Flame, Zedonius has nothing but contempt for human life. He has descended upon the capital of a once-great military superpower, threatening all humankind with an ultimatum: submit to the will of the Fiends or be burned by infernal flames. Ryu must ascend the city's clocktower to put an end to his fearsome reign.
A wizened old shopkeeper, there is more to him than meets the eye. Knowledgeable in weapons new and old, from both East and West, he provides invaluable information for Ryu Hayabusa on his travels. His shops are oases, providing both items and weapon upgrades.
