Ninja Gaiden DS here in June

Ubisoft in charge of distribution.

Ubisoft has snagged the distribution rights to Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword and will be releasing it here in June.

This pocket-ninja adventure has been specially made for the handheld by Tecmo and has things like stylus controls and purpose-built 3D graphics from the future, as well as a fresh story and lots of action.

It looks like - judging by the screenshots and not the position of the sun - you will be playing it all with the DS in a book-like orientation, too.

Dragon Sword was released at the end of March in the US and has been well received. It has a Metacritic average of 83 per cent and has picked up praise for capturing the spirit of the series, although some claimed it was a bit easy.

Cut your way over to our Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword gamepage to watch some trailers.
