A Mini Demo Of Mini Ninjas This WeekS

Take Eidos' adorable little assassins for a spin later this week, as a demo of IO Interactive's Mini Ninjas hits the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Join mini-ninja Hiro, maxi-ninja Futo, and girlie-ninja Suzume as they embark on an epic adventure to bring harmony to a world teetering on the edge of total chaos. Eidos is unleashing the trio of tiny terrors this week, with the PC and Xbox 360 demo dropping on Wednesday. PlayStation 3 owners will need to wait an extra day, due to Sony's great love of Thursday.

Eidos timed the demo's release to coincide with Gamescom in Germany, and PC gamers who attend the show will be able to get their hands on a copy in convenient DVD form if they can manage to push their way through the teeming masses surrounding the Eidos booth.

The full version of Mini Ninjas will hit store shelves on the 8th, 9th, and 11th in North America, the UK, and Europe respectively. Such an early demo release generally indicates a publisher's strong confidence in a title, so we'll see if Eidos' confidence is well-founded later this week.
