Opening cinematic begins under a full red moon
From wilderness, to futuristic Tokyo
Quick strikes equals success
Using ninja magic to wipe out any enemy unfortunate enough to be near me
Cutscene of the first boss: a combat helicopter
Trying to get some breathing room
If you can kill all enemies before they fall down dead, you are treated to an in-game cutscene of the carnage
Note the change in the emblem on the bottom left. As you progress, you sword needs to be fed from the negative energy from dead enemies. Don't feed it enough, and it will feed off of you!
