Product Overview

With the start of the shogun clan Tokugawa’s reign, the long years of bloodshed and strife have come to an end. People expected the peace to last forever. But old resentments from the past had yet to die...

Holding a grudge towards Tokugawa, Yoshiro Yukikusa kidnaps Kirihime, the sole priestess, in order to combine his own demonic powers with the priestess’s and overthrow the shogun’s reign.

Kage and Chihiro are ninjas of Iga, each on a mission to rescue the priestess.

But their fates are yet unknown beyond the demons they must slay in their paths...

The hit arcade game returns, now on a handlheld console!

Two protagonists with two stories provides twice the adventure!

Review It's about time! Ever since the days of the Nintendo Entertainment System, when Nintendo singlehandedly revitalized the video game market with its landmark 8-bit system, people have been clamoring for remakes of all of the most popular titles. For the most part, these calls were heeded, whether the topic is the Final Fantasy series or the endless outpouring of Mario titles or the Metroid franchise, but one call has gone ignored until this point: the legions of fans endlessly clamoring for a continuation of one ninja's battle against evil have finally been heard. There is now a sequel to Legend of Kage...From the moment this title is turned on, players are treated to a rich feast for the senses. The musical accompaniment is fast-paced and entertaining, and while it does seem very out of place for the overwhelmingly Japanese feel of the background, it really helps to make gameplay a lot more fun; this is the kind of soundtrack I could easily see remixed several times. Speaking of which, the backgrounds are surprisingly well-done; everything from an orchard of cherry to trees to a daimyo's castle has been constructed with detail worthy of the DS' capabilities, and it will sometimes be tempting to just stop your wholesale slaughter of evil demon ninja for a while and pay attention to all the interesting stuff behind you. (I don't recommend doing so. Hard, remember?) Sure, the cut scenes are still and unspoken, and the enemies can be a bit difficult to tell apart or track, but these are fairly minor complaints...Overall, I have to say that Legend of Kage 2 is surprisingly well-made, especially by a company known for recent gaming catastrophes...Engaging gameplay, a plethora of unlockables, and above-norm production values really give this title a boost to propel the franchise into this millennium.

GameZone Don't worry if you don't have nostalgia for the original -- Kage 2 deserves to be played based on its own merits.
