Will the Japanese version contain English subtitle? I'm wondering because the Japanese demo had English subtitles so I'm hoping against hope that the real game will have it too. Because if that's the case, I'd just import the Japanese one since the case looks hotter.

Japanese version of NGS1 is multi language.

It's the same cover for all three, unless you are referring to the collector's editions for each region.

And the Japanese version will have the English option as evidenced by the demo, and all Team Ninja games are always multi-lingual regardless of region.

I would rather import, but I want to see full decapitations (JP version censors human decapitations, just like how Biohazard 4 and 5 censor exploding heads on regular Ganado/Manjinis).

Already preordered and paid for the domestic CE, and playing the demo reinforces that. =)

I remember watching a replay on the leaderboards automatically unlocked six mission mode related achievements for me in the 360 version. :lol

FUCK. Are we sure about this?

Yeah, I was talking more about the collector's edition. Although I also think Japanese's rating (CERO) symbol looks nicer than US/Europe one. :p

Nice OP.

I would love to play this game, but will wait for price drops. I've played way too much NGII already, plus I'm broke.

An NG without Itagaki. This will be interesting.

I might pick this up, didn't realize it was out so soon.
Pretty sure I played an NG without Itagaki last year. He hasn't been there in spirit since NGB. Unfortunately.

I was just playing the demo and this game looks very clean. Gameplay is nice, but man that camera. I want to get this game, but I still need to finish other games.

I'm not used to the new PEGI logos. Is that yellow one a 16? Does that mean Europe's getting screwed out of the decapitations again?

Might grab the HMV LE anyway. Really enjoyed the demo.

At least NGS2 demo has even subtitles in Spanish, and audio in both Japanese and English.

Ayane's been reduced from Kasumi's somewhat evil half-demon half-sister to "mysterious courier"?
DOA is after NG, so it's the other way around.

some place.. far away. yes, that will do
I had a go on the demo at Master Ninja. I wasn't doing so bad until those claw guys showed up, yeeeeeeeeeah think I'll stick to mentor.

Speaking of which, do you just a choice between acolyte and warrior at the beginning, and then unlock mentor? Or do you start with mentor and only have to unlock master ninja?

Also, will the euro version have decaps?

So what, did she suddenly become not related or not the spawn of Tengu in the past? :p

They could give her a better description than "courier". That sounds so lame!
Was Raido a tengu? I don't remember that. She was conceived through rape and was treated like the black sheep in her village because of it, but she was still training to become a ninja, and part of her training is to be a courier. So there's nothing here out of the ordinary. Except for her tits, they're not even this big in DOAX.:lol

If it's anything like NG2, you'll have to unlock mentor.

I'll be there day one. Co-op is probably going to take in most of my playing time but looking forward to the single-player too.

We should add our PSN tags for co-op!

Yeah those guys were owning me until I focused my Ki into the controller and handed out the f'ing pain to all of them. Enemies should just perform seppuku when I enter the lvl. Yeah I'm badass.
 
Oh wow, I had no idea this was coming out so soon! I really liked the first Sigma even though I know a lot of purists say it's not the "definitive" version of Ninja Gaiden. Really curious to see how this one turns out, especially because I am now 360less and cannot play my copy of NG2.
