Tomonobu Itagaki has revealed that Ninja Gaiden 2 will be released worldwide in June, exclusively on Xbox 360.
Specifically the US will get the game on 3rd June. No other territory was picked out.
The leather jacket and sunglass-clad boss of Tecmo announced the date at the Microsoft GDC keynote earlier this evening, after showing a special Temple of Sacrifice demo to the crowd.
In it we saw hero Ryu slice through bizarre enemies like they were an offensive piece of cheesecake and he a furious fork, creating a bloody great mess that left us thoroughly confused.
Thank goodness for the frequent controller disconnections, then, and the demonstrator pausing to save before fighting some sort of boss creature with wings and obviously bigger muscles than the rank and file goons.
Interestingly, there also seemed to be some sort of "record" function where you can capture moments of action and upload them. We speculated that this could be some sort of Leaderboard with video proof. [That was certainly what it sounded like - The Man Who Was There]
And that was that.
