I-Ninja update

Leading video games publisher, Namco Hometek Inc. announced today that its highly anticipated action adventure game, I-Ninja, will make its appearance known in a big way this fall on Xbox and PS2. This exciting character-based action game follows I-Ninja, an ultra cool ninja with extreme attitude, as he masters weapons and hones skills throughout gravity defying gameplay.

An adrenaline-charged combat action adventure game, I-Ninja features rich environments designed to challenge the young character I-Ninja and his unique abilities. Set in “The World,” a small, earthlike planet, I-Ninja must follow the instructions of his master “Sensei” to recover lost Rage Stones and free inhabitants imprisoned by Master O-Dor’s evil army of robotic Ranx.

Players follow I-Ninja on his journey as he fights fearsome enemies, overcomes obstacles and fights mini bosses to gain new ninja belts. Packed with high flying action, I-Ninja runs on walls, shreds rails, gets airborne with a “sword copter” spin, swings from chains, throws explosives and utilizes his manga style ninja moves to navigate through five beautifully detailed environments – including the ultimate trip to the moon.
