The newest update has the Ninja Gaiden DS demo we've seen in past videos. In case you don't know, you can go here and find the nearest download station (GameSpot, Best Buy, etc.) and you can download the demo. However, not all stores have the update yet which came out a few days ago so you might want to ask. None of my stores have it yet. Once you download the demo, it'll remain on your DS until you turn it off.

Can you give us an impression when you get it? Since I won't be able to download it, I'm curious about what it has to offer.

I finally got to download it today. The graphics are even better than I expected. I was surprised they can do this on the DS. My highest score so far is 109,820. And of course, UT give you the best score. The controls are pretty nice. I thought the jumping was different when I read the previews. To move you just touch the screen and keep the stylus pressed against it and Ryu will move there. If you just tap the screen, Ryu will throw a shuriken. If you do an upward stroke then Ryu will jump. Another upward stroke will make him double jump or a downward stroke will make him do a downward slash. Or while jumping, a horizontal stroke will make him do Flying Swallow. Every other stroke does an attack. Scratch left and right to do UT.

Combos:

down, down, down (3 slash combo)
down, up, up (2 slash -> Izuna drop)
down, down, up (3 slash -> Izuna drop)
down, left/right, left/right, left/right (4 slash)

I haven't got the time to try it, but I'll import it (high chance) when it comes out.

There are more combos than that....right?

Can you charge UT's?

How many weapons?

How does the ninpo work out this time around?

Big open areas or just kinda funneled to the enemies?

Eh?

That's pretty much it. I missed left/right, left/right, left/right, left/right. You can kind of create your own (i.e. down, up, 3 shuriken, jump(up), flyingswallow (left/right)). Itagaki did mention that he wanted to add more moves.

Quote:

Yup. You just slash back and fourth really fast. The charge is MUCH faster than in Ninja Gaiden if you keep going back and fourth. It takes 3 seconds to make UT with no essence.

Quote:

Only the Dragon Sword and your projectiles are shuriken. But from the videos, there is also a bow.

Quote:

You tap the ninpo icon, and then you just outline the kanji character that appears. A fireball is created and it moves to wherever you move the stylus.

Quote:

There not that big really. Probably hard to show a big area on a small screen.

Hmmmm...sounds limited, but interesting at the same time....

Kinda free form the combos, like redninjax

So...its completely possible to spam UT's.....thats inventive Itagaki, thanks for that...

Aha, so now he can control his balls of fire? So Ryu, when did you learn that? I always thought you just auto targeted whoever you wanted!

Yeah, makes sense.


And I had another question...

About karma? No, thats not it...

I can't remember, cheers Party

Actually you can kinda aim the Ninpo.
Just point the Left Control Stick in the direction near an enemy and Ryu will shoot there.
