'Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns' (NDS) Character Profiles

Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns combes zany characters and hilarious dialogue with hardcore dungeon RPG gameplay, making it stand out from the crowd with more game content, combat options, a unique and memorable RPG experience.

Izuna and her gang are back - and just in time for a wedding! Lured by the promise of free food (Why else would Izuna attend?), the festive event becomes a puzzling mystery when Izuna's sidekick Shino suddenly disappears, off in search of her long-lost sister. And making matters worse, the foreign gods have also arrived on Japanese soil, and they aren't very happy with the meddlesome, unemployed ninja. With disgruntled deities on the warpath, a sidekick to track down, and a missing sister out in the wild, it could all shape up to be one of Izuna's more exciting adventures. Sounds like a lot of work for a girl out of a job!

Yep, that's me! I am such a sexy kunoichi. Look at my deep green eyes, my full bodied figure and-- Oh, you wanted to hear about my personality? Well, I'm the main character of this little show. People say I'm lazy, self-centered, and that I have no common sense. You know what though? They're just jealous of my star power.

We call him "Grandboss," because he's pretty much our boss and our only family. In fact, we'd follow him to the end of the world in search of a place where he can settle down. Last time... that didn't work out so well, but we'll keep looking. I know you're tired Grandboss, don't worry...

This is my best friend, Shino. I call her Shino-Sis, because she treats me more like a younger sister than a friend. But she actually has a real sister who got separated from her a long time ago. Even though her expression doesn't change much, she burns with fiery passion on the inside. I'm sure of it!

Oh... him. He's the guy who vowed his allegiance to us, making him our eternal servant. He totally thinks he's awesome, and he's always trying to pick up on girls. What a loser. And listen, it's still MY game, so BACK OFF!

She's a really strong fisherwoman from Suirei who I totally thought would never get married. She's too buff for her own good, and she's kind of a tomboy. But apparently she found someone, so...

She's the goddess of Water who just thinks she's sooo mature! I'll tell you what she really is though! A brat! A brat with a temper who likes to play tricks on people! Is it obvious we don't get along?

Ehh, he's not the best looking guy in the world, and he's just a simple fisherman from Suirei, but he's kinda smart, and honest, too. Looks like his love for Ichika paid off...

He's the god of Earth, and he's way into honor and following Bushido, the code of the warrior. Whatever floats his boat. Even though he won't admit it, he's totally my biggest fan. Isn't that right, you big Earth god, you!?

The goddess of Wind. She's always so calm and kind. Even to me, and that's really something. People say she's got a violent side, but they must be mistaking her for someone else. I think...

If he had half as much brains as he did brawn... Well, he's the god of Fire, and he's... compassionate and emotional, but... simple. Very, very simple.
