Ninja Gaiden II in action

Still well away from the 2008 release date, Team Ninja is keeping our bloodlust sated with a shiny set of new screens and perhaps the most awesome ninja hack-n-slash gameplay vid we’ve seen this month. Take a gander at the gameplay down below and headhereto see the new screens.

This second chapter in the bloody story of Ryu Hayabusa has our ninja hero out to avenge his ninja clan with an all-new arsenal of ninja weapons and a fresh repertoire of ninja magic. The new gameplay engine looks pretty ninja, too. Keep your eyes peeled for a more concrete release date after the holiday season ends.
