This is what happens when you use Mad Libs to name your video games.
Microsoft Japan held its Fall Media Briefing today-ish (I am endlessly confused by the time difference), during which it finally officially announced Ninja Blade, a title that we first heard about during that crazy Intellisponse leak. You can catch a brief prerendered trailer for the game at the official Ninja Blade website, though thus far it seems easily summed up as "Ninja Gaiden, But Not." There's even something about the weird metal forehead crest thing that is very Ryu Hayabusa-y. Hopefully Microsoft and developer From Software have some plans to differentiate Ninja Blade, because right now the whole motif of physics-defying ninjas fighting demons against a glass-and-steel backdrop feels way too familiar.
