Crimson Shroud, Ninja Gaiden hit eShop soon

Crimson Shroud, the third and final (probably) eShop release from Level-5’s Guild01, will be out in both North America and Europe on December 13. The news was tucked into a press release about Aero Porter, which is out this week and is pretty intense.

In other eShop news, Ninja Gaiden (NES) will be on the 3DS Virtual Console in North America next week for $5. That news comes from… the eShop itself!

Ninja Gaiden painting by jDeuce. The artist created this image, based on our favorite screen from the NES game, on a 3DS in Colors! 3D! In fact, you can watch the whole process as an animation here on the Colors Gallery.
I intend to check out Colors! 3D, but, like, there are non-software issues preventing me from creating any great works. If you know what I mean. I mean I can’t draw very well.

Despite some initial technical difficulties with the video stream, Kotaku has posted the first U.S. episode of Game Center CX/Retro Game Master — well, it’s actually the ninth episode from the Japanese show’s fourth season, but no matter, it’s subtitled and released!

I didn’t see if the video includes some of the show’s tangential bits (the Japanese airing included a trip to an arcade in Ebisu), but I can see why Kotaku would cut those scenes, as they don’t relate to Arino’s game challenge, which this time is beating Ninja Gaiden.

Anyway, you can stream the episode for free here so long as you’re in U.S. Sorry, Europe/Canada. :o(

Ninja Gaiden 2 comic panels from Nintendo Power's strategy guide (possibly drawn by Katsuya Terada?). Tecmo was making people say “Unngh” years before Master P stormed basketball courts atop a gold tank.
You can flip through pages from the issue/guide in this video!

Ryu Hayabusa in Super Mario Bros. Crossover!! Finally, a Ninja Gaiden game in which I’ll (probably) be able to make it past the first few levels! This SMBC 1.1 update isn’t out yet, but if its development is far along enough to produce a trailer like this, I expect it will release soon.

Other NES heroes I want to see in this flash game:  Little Nemo, Arthur (Ghosts N’ Goblins), Bionic Commando (how would this even work?), Golgo 13, Yo! Noid, and Vic Viper.

CES flyer for Ninja Gaiden 2: The Dark Sword of Chaos, scanned by Frank Cifaldi for a great Retronauts flyer roundup.
This flyer features the awesome “just take a picture of the screen” technology used before GameFan came along and made SCREENSHOT HISTORY.
I love this flyer for obvious reasons.

Really, there’s no way we couldn’t feature this painting, what with this being (kind of like) our footer and all. And of course, we also must admire Levi “Doctor Octoroc” Buffum’s bead recreation of the same scene:

Ninja Gaiden stage 1-1 papercraft. I love these diorama-type papercrafts, and the Tiny Cartridge staff adores Ninja Gaiden, as you may have surmised.
