Microsoft will be treating those pre-ordering Ninja Gaiden II to a fancy Ryu costume.

It's a rather elaborate set of armour that makes your character look a little like the fiends you're chopping up, and the first 39,000 people to pick up your ordered copies from select retailers will get it. More information on who those "select" shops will be is expected soon.

However, anyone who misses out will be able to download a trio of costume packs in July from Xbox Live Marketplace, priced at 200 Microsoft Points (GBP 1.70 / EUR 2.40) each.

Ninja Gaiden II is due for release in Europe on 6th June, and has plenty of gore as well as a more approachable entry-point for newcomers, although there are four difficulties to master so old-hands are far from being deserted. Gaiden II also lets you record and upload your footage to Xbox Live.

Pop over to our still warm hands-on with Ninja Gaiden II to find out more.
