Mini Ninjas demos this week

Try Hitman developer IO's latest.

IO Interactive has made a Mini Ninjas demo for release on PC and Xbox 360 this Wednesday, and for PS3 on Thursday.

PC owners need keep an eye on the official Mini Ninjas website for the sampler.

Contents aren't discussed, but an early portion of Hiro, Futo and Suzume's adventure is likely.

IO Interactive (Kane & Lynch, Hitman) is trying something new with Mini Ninjas, and targeting a younger, wider audience with slapstick cartoon violence. The studio's track record makes Mini Ninjas worth keeping an eye on, but whether there will be sufficient clout for the core crowd to appreciate remains to be seen.

Looks nice, though,.

Mini Ninjas is due out 11th September on DS, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
