Ninja Gaiden for DS shuriken make people excited

I’ll start off by half-apologizing for that headline but these Ninja Gaiden games don’t come out all that often so I gotta strike while the iron’s hot. Anyhoo, ‘Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword’ is out today and it’s gotten some pretty good reviews from the big gaming sites.

The gameplay features a top-down isometric view of the action along with stylus-heavy combat a la ‘The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass’. You also apparently hold the DS sideways like a book “to assist in the operation of the stylus which allows players to view a wider range of scenes.”
