I-Ninja Spins Onto XboxLeading video games publisher, Namco Hometek Inc. announced today that its highly anticipated action adventure game, I-Ninja, will make its appearance known in a big way this fall on Xbox. This exciting character-based action game follows I-Ninja, an ultra cool ninja with extreme attitude, as he masters weapons and hones skills throughout gravity defying gameplay. “I-Ninja is certainly shaping up to pack a powerful punch and give other platformers a run for their money this fall,” said Jon Kromrey, Producer at Namco Hometek, Inc. “I-Ninja’s unique and quirky character, stunning graphics and expansive environments make a perfect fit for Xbox.” An adrenaline-charged combat action adventure game, I-Ninja features rich environments designed to challenge the young character I-Ninja and his unique abilities. Set in “The World,” a small, earthlike planet, I-Ninja must follow the instructions of his master “Sensei” to recover lost Rage Stones and free inhabitants imprisoned by Master O-Dor’s evil army of robotic Ranx. Players follow I-Ninja on his journey as he fights fearsome enemies, overcomes obstacles and fights mini bosses to gain new ninja belts. Packed with high flying action, I-Ninja runs on walls, shreds rails, gets airborne with a “sword copter” spin, swings from chains, throws explosives and utilizes his manga style ninja moves to navigate through five beautifully detailed environments -- including the ultimate trip to the moon. Developed by Argonaut Games, I-Ninja for Xbox is a single-player adventure in the third-person perspective. For more information on I-Ninja or any of Namco’s titles visit www.namco.com.
