Newly released today:
Having been made for the arcade in 1985, this ninja action game is rejuvenated by Taito for Nintendo DS™. It is a horizontal scroll action game, and with the DS's two screens, the field becomes even wider for existing fans and first time gamers to explore. Like the first installment of this series, the plot takes place during the transition from the Sengoku period to the Tokugawa period. Tokugawa Ieyasu, the shogun emerged as the victor and unified Japan after years of war. He has heard of the high priestess Kirihime and her spiritual powers and seeks to recruit her.
The ninja Kage is sent to escort the priestess from her home to the palace under the shogun's command. However, the demon lord Yojiro also has his eyes set on Kirihime's powers and abducted her on her way after severely wounding Kage. Kage would not have survived from his wounds if not for Kirihime's special powers, taking this miracle as a sign, he pledged his life to rescue the priestess.
To make this engaging plot even more complicated, an original playable character Chihiro is introduced in this episode. She is Kirihime's younger sister, a ninja with spiritual powers that rivaled the priestess. After learning that her sister has been abducted, she, too set off to her rescue, and thus Kage and Chihiro's paths crossed.
Taito's Kage Densetsu: The Legend of Kage 2 for Nintendo DS™ is in stock today, shipping as region free Japanese version for US$ 39.90 only.
