    Wooo, Ninja Gaidan for DS. Can't really judge the initial graphics of the game as those scans are terrible but I'm hoping Team Ninja can pull it off and create good/decent game.

    From what I can tell, the visuals are really good...but of course, they're small screenshots, so we may have to wait a little while before telling for sure.

    Great news for them to be getting behind DS in this way!

    Awesome stuff! The DS is a money-making machine, so why not - hopefully something from the team will also be Wii bound..

    OMG That is simply amazing! I can't wait! Hopefully the PSP doesn't get a version too.

    sounds good

    This is more like it!

    A Wii version would have been cooler, but this is still great news.

    Really should get around to finishing the first one, though. Smilie

    Oh Karn, you *canned laughter* Smilie

    Though Ninja Gaiden coming to DS is good enough news, I just hope they don't bodge it up... There's been several potentially good games that didn't turn out THAT good when they arrived... Let's just hope this game isn't one of them^^

    The shots dont look very clear but none-the-less a Ninja Gaiden game for DS Smilie YAYAYAYA! Smilie
    I wish they would put the NES game on VC!! Smilie

    I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

    Ninja Gaiden IS coming to the Virtual Console! It's been listed on the OLFC, the Australian ratings board... Smilie

    And this top-down action looks impressive on the second scan!

    The "vandalism" says:

    The moaning man who swore he would only work on high specked consoles, with the influence of the bold mr (tatsui? - I'm crap at kanji) will now appear on the DS W (in japan w is like 733t sp33ch for lol)

    Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

    Woah!! Hell yeah!!! I LOVE Ninja Gaiden! Get ready to get insurance on your DS because a lot of them are going to be breaking from throwing them against walls!!

    im sorry, but those screens just = pure sex on a console. HOLY CRAP does that look nice. Especially on the DS that is the kinda stuff the DS can pull off if the developers put a little more effort in. It also sounds like it uses the Touch screen to the full extent.. I really cant wait for this game.

    Cheers Simon - it's true, as Itagaki does prefer the beefier systems. But he committed to doing a DS game ages ago...and he's a man of his word it seems!

    These clearer images show how much the DS is being pushed. Can't wait until we see more of Mistwalker's Archaic Sealed Heat as well Smilie

    Even though they're quite clearly pre-rendered backgrounds, it'll probably just mean it has fixed cameras. Which means it'll be like Devil May Cry, and that's fine with me ;3

    Damn, the graphics are nice for the DS. Looking great!

    Smilie Go DS!! You push yourself!! *giggles*

    wow, i might seriously have to pick up a cheap DS when this rolls around. theres plenty of other games worth a look too, and i can get a DS for

    You mean Sigma? It's just a PS3 remake of the Xbox game isn't it?

    I remember this on the xbox, SO hard. It's looking good though.
