features beautifully rendered environments, fast Ninja Gaiden-style action,
numerous enemies, and a new story. Various directional movements and taps with
the DS stylus will activate Ryu Hayabusa to run, jump, attack, and cast Ninpo

special attacks like the "Izuna Drop" and the "Cicada Slash" which were made
famous in the Ninja Gaiden console games.

new level of gaming action to the Nintendo DS," says Yoh Watanabe, Tecmo’s
