Ninja Gaiden: DS dated

Dragon Sword good to go next March in the US

Tecmo has slapped Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword with a release date of March of 2008. We don't know if that means the UK and Europe too but we're trying to find out.

DOA mastermind and legendary developer Tomonobu Itagaki recently told us a little about the DS version. "The story of Ninja Gaiden 1 for the Xbox dealt with the mythology of the Vigoor Empire, the setting of the majority of that game. Ninja Gaiden DS takes place six months later, and the story deals with what happened after the conclusion of Ninja Gaiden 1.

"It will tackle issues like: what exactly were the foes that Hayabusa fought in the Vigoor Empire, who created them, and for what purpose? These and other mysteries will be revealed."
