Mini Ninjas Make Happy PandasS

IO Interactive takes a step away from their popular Hitman franchise to introduce us to an all-new, all-tiny brand of hero, with the announcement of Mini Ninjas.

Mini Ninjas tells the story of Hiro, a tiny little ninja killing machine on a quest to restore harmony to the world by battling the Evil Samurai Warlord and his army of evil Samurai. Well I'm sold.

“Mini Ninjas represents a truly special game for us,” said Niels Jørgensen, General Manager of Io Interactive. “The whole team is very excited about it, because it is unique in so many ways. From the art style to the characters and the depth of the game – Mini Ninjas has that exceptional appeal, which is sure to keep both young and old very entertained.”

The game is due out this fall in North America and Europe, with versions being released on the Nintendo DS, Wii, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Check out the gallery below for screens from the DS, Wii, and next-gen versions, and watch the announcement trailer to see just how freaking awesome ninjas can be, regardless of their size.
