Today gamers in Japan will get their hands on the new demo Ninja Blade, a new action game to be released by FromSoftware. This demo should give us insight of whether or not the developer has arrived at their goal to create a “cinematic action game.” While our fellow Japanese gamers test the demo to see if this goal has been reached, the rest of us may be waiting till its time of release as no other regional demos have been confirmed.
What is left to be seen is whether Ninja Blade will able to distinguish itself from many of the other ninja actions games in the marketplace today, specifically its toughest competitor Ninja Gaiden II, released this past June.
The game is to arrive on Japanese shelves on January 29th with the rest of the world lagging behind a few days with a February 3rd release date. But luckily for those of you who want to prepare yourselves for the release, the theme song can be downloaded on Itunes today for $0.99, under the song name beanstalk, artist Yuki Koyanagi.
