Unemployment can turn a good ninja into a drama queen

It seems like just yesterday that we were first talking about Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja, a roflcoptery title if ever there was one, and now it's mere weeks away from a February release. It's crazy how time flies, especially when we're busy being fanatical for our favorite handheld.

Just to get you into the campy ninja spirit, there's a video of poor Izuna after the jump. Please, for the love, give this girl a job. Everyone deserves to feel like they have a purpose in life, and we have a soft spot for funny-colored hair. Not to mention we do love a game that doesn't employ the stylus unnecessarily, and apparently, Izuna is stylus-free. We're in! Now go watch the video.

1. I'd hire her.

If it weren't for all the dungeons (reminds me too much of Mystery Dungeon, which I didnt like either), or that digimon game for playstation... I'd buy it.

2. These graphics are pretty much unacceptable for the DS. This game might have been fine on the GBA but not on the DS. I think it's funny that these developers thing they can get away with this because they use some barely animated pictures on the top screen. Honestly Zelda: The Minish Cap looks better than this.

3. Graphics mean nothing. Gameplay is the important thing.

4. I wish I wouldn't have gotten pokemon mystery dungeon, this looks just like it except with a little more depth that would've kept my interest a little longer. Nice idea though.

5. Afterlifer82: Not sure what to say to you! This game will be intense and the DS is perfect for games that need a map to be displayed at all times. I can hardly play the GBA castlevanias after having tried the DS ones. This is the same scenario. Think with your head man!

6. Actually graphics do matter, I'd never pay $30-$35 for this game. I spent $130 on my DS and got rid of my gba for two reasons, better graphics and stylus use, this game has neither. This game could easily run on gba, sure you'd have to use one screen for playing and map viewing but we've been doing that for years.
