Ninja Gaiden 2 dated for June 3

Today, Microsoft announced that Ninja Gaiden 2, exclusive to the Xbox 360, will be on store shelves June 3rd of this year.

They also revealed that Europe will be seeing the game a mere three days later on June 6th. The game will go on sale for the expected $59.99 here and €44.49 in Europe.

Microsoft said:Ryu Hayabusa returns in this action-packed sequel to ‘Ninja Gaiden’, on a mission to avenge his clan and prevent the destruction of the human race. Universal themes of vengeance and honour are played out from Tokyo to New York and to the netherworld as a series of dramatic events create a truly compelling story.

Players must become the ninja, utilising a revolutionary combat system that demands skill and mastery of a massive arsenal of weapons. "Ninja Gaiden II" features unique acrobatic combat, tooled with brutal new primary weapons and enhanced versions of old favorites, and Obliteration Techniques allow players to finish off opponents with devastating speed and style, representing a true evolution of the highly popular franchise.

The franchise’s distinctive gameplay is accentuated by a new auto-healing system featuring semi-permanent damage restored at save points. In addition to this, extensive story mode and multiple levels of difficulty make for an experience that is easy to play, but hard to master – accessible to novices and the most fanatic of gamers alike.

It’s good news to hear that NG2 will be heading our way soon. I never played the NES originals but I was a huge fan of Xbox’s Ninja Gaiden Black. You can bet I will be picking this one up.
