Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Legendary Digital announced today that a video game version of the bloody-gory action movie is now available at the deadly fingertips of iPhone or iPod Touch users.
According to the press release…
Ninja Assassin is a stealthy side scrolling hack n’ slash action game featuring an innovative touch-based, gesture control scheme. The player controls a single combatant against a number of different mobs and bosses identical to the primary enemies found in the Ninja Assassin movie. The gameplay is intense yet intuitive, while the gesture system allows the player to pull off stunning attacks that provide rich, over-the-top visuals along with a feeling of empowerment.The game doesn’t look half-bad at all and seems to take on a little bit of the visual appeal from Muramasa: The Demon Blade for the Nintendo Wii. The game is just as bloody as the movie and features dismemberment, multiplayer mini-games and non-stop hack-and-slash action. Yeah so basically it’s like Ninja Gaiden Sigma for the iPhone.
