Kunoichi renamed

Shades of Shinobi.

Kunoichi, the spiritual successor to the rather dire PS2 Shinobi title, will not be called Kunoichi. Those looking to follow in Hotsuma's footsteps as a mystical female ninja on Japanese government pay will want to look out for Nightshade - as it will be known in the US, and presumably Europe. Although Sega wouldn't confirm the name change for Europe this morning, they did send out seven new screenshots.
