Ninja Gaiden II isn't the only Xbox 360-exclusive ninja game finding its way to a new system. While Tecmo's action game arrives on the PlayStation 3 next week as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, ND Games and From Software today announced that a PC version of the latter's Ninja Blade will launch next month.

Yes, that's a ninja blowing up a mutant helicopter over Tokyo. No, that's not normal, even for Tokyo.

Ninja Blade follows hero Ken Ogawa and a shinobi support team as they try to save humanity from an epidemic. Rather than spend their time in lab coats looking for vaccines, Ken and company use their talents to clean up the streets of Tokyo, which are choked with victims of the disease who have been turned into monsters.

Released in April, Ninja Blade represented a departure for From Software. While the developer has created a number of installments in the Tenchu series of ninja games, that franchise's stealth focus is a far cry from Ninja Blade's absurdly over-the-top, quick-time event-driven action sequences (see video below).
