From Software's ninjitsu series makes its entry on the Nintendo DS™ with a 3D overhead game. Three characters are playable this time: Rikimaru, Ayame and Shizuhim. A number of new ninja skills have been added to the game, including biting and laughing skills.

The game's action is taking place on the top screen, while the bottom one is used to display items, a map and as input for finishing moves with the touch screen. The new overhead view allows you to get a better fix on enemy distance; the map shows the position of enemies in the area. As another new element of the game, you need to collect items to combine them into useful ninja tools.

For the sake of all handheld fans most of the available missions take only five to ten minutes to complete, so the game can be played easily on the go. Further, the focus in many missions has been put on tactical play, such as settings traps in order to take out enemies, rather than killing enemies directly.


From Software's Tenchu: Dark Shadow for Nintendo DS™ is in stock today, available at US$ 48.90.
