When ninjas attack, mini or not, they attack in full force as evidenced by the load of screenshots, artwork, and videos Eidos has released of the IO Interactive-developed Mini Ninjas game. The images (10 below and all 77 in our Mini Ninjas gallery) and three videos show us mini ninjas Hiro, Futo and Suzume in a number of environments ranging from the snowy Ski Hill Pass to the lush Bamboo Forest doing what all ninjas of the miniature kind (apparently) do — kicking samurai butt, drinking potions, striking the occasional pose, and looking effin adorable in the process.
The first two of the three videos, a trailer and a Hiro vignette, are both beautifully executed, with the third, a gameplay video showing Hiro in action, not far behind on the awesome scale, mainly thanks to the 1:20 mark.
Let’s just hope developing all this ninja cutesiness — set for a September release on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, and DS by the way — isn’t taking too much time away from the next Hitman game.
