Ninja Gaiden II Earns Its Gold Belt

NinjaGaidenII.jpg I’ve got good news fellow fans of ninjas and extreme gore! Microsoft, Tecmo and Team Ninja have confirmed that Ninja Gaiden II has officially gone gold and is all set to meet its North American ship date of June 3rd. In honor of the game’s impending release, there’s a bunch of cool video content in the pipeline too, including a series of seven “Ask A Ninja” clips available on the Xbox Live Marketplace (three are currently available, with more episodes due out on May 27th, June 3rd and June 10th) and an hour-long behind-the-scenes documentary called “The Way of the Warrior: Ninja Gaiden II” that will be airing on GamePlay HD May 30th (and will be available to download on Xbox Live June 10th). Still no word about when exactly the demo will be launching, but it’s supposed to be out this month so it’ll have to be next week.
