Ninjas and shurikens and Tanooki testicles! Oh my!

I'm a sucker for games that try to take things back to the good ol' days. Which means I'm *very* interested in the game shown in this here video:

The game, Ninja Senki, isn't a long-lost GameBoy Color ROM. It's a brand new game that's being made by Jonathan Lavigne, an artist/coder at Ubisoft Montreal. (Lavigne's previous credits: the Open Season and TMNT titles that were released for the GameBoy Advance.)

According to Eric Caoili over at, Lavigne hopes to release Ninja Senki before Christmas. Here's hoping he releases it as a GameBoy Color or GameBoy Advance ROM.

That looks so cool! I love that retro styling is coming back.

Me too! I love that this game looks like a mash-up of Mega Man and Ninja Gaiden--two of my all-time-favorite NES games :)
