Ubisoft to tackle Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword in Europe

It's just ninja leapt onto shop shelves in Japan and the US amongst a blaze of 'pretty good' reviews (our own will be up very shortly) and now Ubisoft has announced publishing duties for the Tecmo game Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword in the UK.

The game is played holding the DS sideways (making for problematic screenshots for us) and uses all-stylus controls for running, jumping, attacking and casting Ninpo as character Ryu. There are also special signature moves pulled off by doing touchscreen combos. Our own review will tell you we liked the controls but felt the game was a little short – just some five or six hours' worth.

Ubisoft says it plans to bring Dragon Sword to the UK in June, so a bit of a wait but nothing too drastic. You can also check out a new video of the game in action here.
