Become immersed in Ninja Gaiden like never before as you run, jump, throw shirukens, and cast ninpo magic all through the intuitive use of the DS Stylus. Take control as the new story unfolds in a unique and highly stylized graphical adventure. Uncover all the mysteries of Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword as youfight enemy ninjas and battle various fiends while taking on the role of Master Ninja, Ryu Hayabusa, in an all new storyline for the Nintendo DS.
Developed by Executive Producer Tomonobu Itagaki and the Team NINJA development studio, Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword features beautifully rendered environments, fast Ninja Gaiden-style action, numerous enemies, and a new story. Various directional movements and taps with the DS stylus will activate Ryu Hayabusa to run, jump, attack, and cast Ninpo (Ninja Magic). Certain combinations of movements will allow players to perform special attacks like the “Izuna Drop” and the “Cicada Slash” which were made famous in the Ninja Gaiden console games.
A young Ninja named Ryu Hayabusa, survivor of the Hayabusa clan and descendant of the Dragon Lineage, took up his family’s legendary birthright,the Dragon Sword,to face this threat alone. At the end of an intense battle, Ryu shattered the evil Dark Dragon Blade into countless shards with a blow from his Dragon Sword. Six months have passed since what is now known as the Dark Dragon Blade Incident.
