    Also, according to ludibria, this should be nuked. (reason: missing.region.tag)
    JP told me before not to nuke releases (especially venom's) for that reason.

    I beat the Japanese version when it came out way back. It's definitely a good game. It's short, but still really fun. You can beat it in 3-4 hours and it's good for a long car trip somewhere. I recommend the download/purchase. If you need any help with some of the bosses, pm me, because some of them can be really tough.

    This game clearly shows why ninja>>>pirates. By the way it's a solid platformer with a neat ninjutsu customizing mode and cool skills. What else do you want?

    Very fun, quite tough, though I wish they would walk you through at least the basics. That said, it's pretty easy to figure things out. I tried the Japanese version and knew it was something I wanted to play more of, but I figured I'd wait for an English release. Worth the wait! Kind of a Metroidvania game with ninjas. Just finished the second chapter, and the boss was hard, but once you figure out their patterns, it's pretty fun, if slightly drawn out.

    Sweet. It's funny, I was just in the game store this afternoon asking for this, and it still wasn't there. Must not be a very wide-spread release.

    Man, I wonder how long it's been since I beat the NES Legend of Kage. Probably about 20 years now. [​IMG]

    At GameStop/EBgames they're selling it for $19.99. Usual DS games at $29.99. Anyone know whats the price for other stores?
