Looks really great for DS. Still thinking if I should get this.

Edit: After watching that trailer I am sure to get it.

that is because NGDS is before NG2, and have things in common.

The chick's design looks horrible and the new controls have the possibility of ruining the game altogether, but I'll definitely give it a try since it's Team Ninja.

It looks decent but the thought of trying to control Ryu with what is basically a mouse just doesn't bode well for me. I'm not a great fan of Team Ninja in general, just Ninja Gaiden and well, if you change shit up too much (like this) it might turn out awesome but it might also suck noodle. All in all i don't think this is for me though, since i hardly ever enjoy gaming on portable systems.

Why didn't they just put this on the PSP? The first version of NG barely used to right thumbstick so it would have seemed like a natural move.

I just can't imagine playing NG the way it was shown there.

I am still not sure about the control system, i just don't see how this can come anywhere near the complexity and speed of the regular controls.

Most of the backgrounds are prerendered... Graphically it's not so impressive when you consider that. Gameplay-wise, I'd rather take another play through NGS than play this one, based on how the gameplay looks.

WOW! Congrats to Nintendo, never thought the DS could handle something like this.
I will wait to see if there are any slowdowns in the game but it looks promising.
I gotta buy a DS lite for this one!

And to the comment on the backgrounds prerendered. I actaully prefer that in this type of game. It goes with the art style and how the game is played.

It certainly may help the art/graphics, but I don't think prerendered graphics ever help the gameplay. No camera controls, for those times an enemy might get in front of the camera or the angle is strange, or you're going from one 'background' to the next.

It's a simple game, doubt you will need to control the camera.

Well this looks nice I think. I like the drawn art as well. There seems to be more NPC's around this time. The new female ninja(kunoichi?) is called Momiji and I've heard she is Hayabusa's apprentice... I like her design, her dark hair contrasting her white outfit. She is playable as well! I wonder if she will make an appearance in Ninja Gaiden 2? As for the DS version the only problem I see is that my left-handedness will partly obscure the left screen... which is a real bummer let me tell you that!

Oops, I said that your right hand would be using the stylus, but what I meant was your dominant hand. If you're left-handed, you can rest easy because Ninja Gaiden DS will feature a mode that flips the screens upside-down for left-handed players.
I read that same thing from other sites too like IGN so you don't need to worry about it.

not all backgrounds are prerendered. The boss battles are not as you can tell by the camera movement around them.
