Six new Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword (DS) screens have been released, in much the same way we imagine blood spills out of sword cuts in the actual title.
Ninja Gaiden DS occurs straight after the original game on the Xbox, as Ryu rebuilds his peaceful home village. As you can see from the screenshots, it doesn't stay that way for long.
