Unemployed ninja seeks job, finds web site

The official site for Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja is up and running today, showcasing everything from sketches to screens to the game's twisted sense of humor. What's that, you say? Deviant humor in a game from Atlus? Yeah, it's good to see Atlus branching out like that with the games they publish. Not that we're complaining here; someone needs to localize silly Japanese action RPGs so that we can enjoy them as well, and it looks like there's going to be a lot to enjoy in Izuna. We've tucked a few screens away after the jump, but there's loads more content at the site.

I'm torn between the quirky humor and the near-impossible, boring Roguelike/Mysterious Dungeon gameplay.

I agree

This game would make an awesome Anime (after the vein of a more mature Naruto, although Naruto is more mature in Japan)

But as a game, eeehhh.......

Hung: you are totally screwed. This being an Atlus game, you had better get it right away or risk never seeing it again.

20XX and Mr Khan! You two are found by this court to be fools. Obviously you'd rather play some "ordinary" RPG that's impossible to lose, and somehow convince yourselves that that's less boring.

You are sentenced to play Nethack until you get a clue.

uh, wtf is up with this image: http://www.atlus.com/izuna/Izuna7_1280x1024.jpg

??

Does this game involve lesbians? Note that this is the actual atlus site, not some p2p hentai fake job.

Never thought a ds game released in the usa would be so...spicy.
