Say “Hello” to Ken. No, not that dragon-punching blondie. Ken the Ninja, hero of Microsoft and FromSoftware’s upcoming action title, Ninja Blade. The game takes place in a realistically modeled Tokyo where Ken must battle against the effects of a rampant genetic disease plaguing the city while also trying to root out the source of a betrayal among his team of ninjas. As a ninja, Ken will obviously employ a divers array of razor sharp and finely pointed weapons to deal death among his enemies, but he will also hone special ninja techniques and powers along the way. Check out some more screens after the jump and see if they get your ninja blood to a boil.
Ninja blade will be available for the Xbox 360 in the US on April 7th. No word yet on if or when a demo might be available for download.
UPDATE: Major Nelson has announced that a demo for Ninja Blade is now up for download on Xbox LIVE.
