According to Teamxbox and the Tecmo forums, a playable demo is available on the March issue of the Official Xbox Magaine.

Hmm...I thought this was out already?? I guess it must only be in Japan.

Cause, I played the full version well over a week ago in one of those shops in Akihabara. Very very nice....hehehe....

Your a cruel cruel man.

Seriously though, has anybody gotten a firm release date on this yet. Some places have the 24th and some have the 25th. Any ideas?

I played the Ninja Gaiden demo last nite. Upon first impressions, (I know I'm gonna get knocked around for this one) I think I prefer Shinobi/Kunoichi over this game. Sure the graphics are better, but the fighting system seems quite clunky on this beta test version. Camera angels are awkward and it's hard to change the camera sometimes. I'll reserve my final judgement on the retail release though.

No, no one from Tecmo gave confirmation yet, but a bunch of retailers have it set for 3/2 now. And Gamespot gave their take on it.

I finally played the Demo last night and all i can say is its gaming bliss! That 10 min. demo or so puts all other ninja games to shame and mostly every action game as well. I kicked so much a$$ it wasnt even funny, ive played it no less than 5 times already and plan on playing it till this darn thing gets released.

Wow! That's all I can say. Really, really cool. Definitely worth the wait. Just hoping it's as long and as varied as those preview videos make it out to be.

Btw -- what's the best combo you've gotten? Using the flail (sweet weapon), I've gotten 107.

Tough boss too. Might be able to beat him next time. I've always got to learn to block.

Have you guys seen the video of an anonymous player playing the Japanese demo? He's got skillz. It's only available via bittorrent so you'd need that to download it.. and it's 107MB. But there's a bunch of seeders so you'll get it in no time. It was going at 250KB/sec for me.

The camera looks a little iffy, but the game indeed does look like pure sex (in ninja form) :ninja:

I thought that I read somewhere that this would be a 60 hour game.
That seems kind of long for an action game but I hope its true !

I've played it two hours straight...and that's just with the sword.
There's a huge list of combos with the sword alone.

I haven't tried the flail or the two-handed sword yet but I'm assuming they have their own set of combos to master.

The game looks really good but I enjoy the ambient sounds even more than the graphics. The background music is the feudal-Japan type with the typical instruments/sounds you would hear in the movies of this kind.

I love the dramatic presentation of the Ninja tower (forgot what it's called) when you get to the top. Again, the music is what really helps to set the mood for the battles awaiting you in the dojo.

The interactive environment is not just for show in this game. You can break lots of things with your weapons but more importantly, there are a number of moves you can do when jumping off a wall. Some of the moves are necessary to progress through the game.

True, the camera does need some work. However, pressing the Right trigger resets the camera angle behind your ninja.

Great animation (some of the combos just look cool), SOUND, graphics, and some Hollywood-esque cutscenes in this demo certainly have got me looking forward to the full version of the game.
