Namco Bandai Games have announced that they’ve picked up the European localization rights to Spike/Acquire’s stealth action ninja game Shinobido 2: Tales of the Ninja. The game will be a launch title for Vita in Europe. As of this writing, no publisher has stepped up for North American duties, but as Spike’s sole purpose for appearing at E3 was to sell the game to localization firms, I don’t think we have anything to worry about.
Even if a publisher doesn’t bite, we can just import the game cartridge release, just as Shinobido fans did for the PSP, and PS2 games which were released in Europe, but not North America.
As Andriasang reports, Famitsu has released the debut trailer for Acquire’s Spike published Shinobido sequel. The game was briefly seen in the E3 2011 PlayStation Vita sizzle reel, but now we can get a better look at it (though the video itself is quite lacking). As well, Famitsu also released some low resolution screenshots.
