[edit] Story

The game takes place one year after the events of Ninja Gaiden and six months after Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword.

[edit] Prologue

Long ago, before history began, ancient deities vied for control of the world. The Archfiends, born from the very essence of hatred, rose above the fray and threatened complete domination.

All seemed hopeless, until the Dragons emerged. Rising from the virgin earth, these ferocious creatures waged war with the Archfiends. After countless battles, the dragons defeated the Archfiends and drove them deep into the ground, locking them away forever.

The scars of these battles have long since healed and the Dragons have faded into the mists of time, but their legacy lives on. Among the strongest of mankind. Dragons' blood courses through their veins. Members of this bloodline, the Dragon Lineage, have vowed to stay vigilant and protect our world from threat of the Archfiends.

As the modern descendants of the Dragon Lineage, the Hayabusa Ninja Clan still upholds their ancient oath. Their village, hidden among the mountains of Japan, guards many previous artifacts vital in the war against evil.

Above all else, the Hayabusa Ninja Clan treasures the Dragon Sword. Carved from the fang of a Dragon, this sword hungers for the blood of Fiends, and the Dragon Lineage has always kept it well fed. Passed down through the eons to the current heir, the Dragon Sword now rests in the grip of the young but deadly Ninja, Ryu Hayabusa. It is considered one of the most powerful weapons in existence, but its true strength now lies dormant, waiting to be reunited with the legendary Eye of the Dragon.

Hayabusa Village's most dangerous and dreaded artifact, however, it the Demon Statue. Though the details are lost to legend, the Demon Statue helped seal one of the Archfiends within his earthly prison and banished his Four Greater Fiends to eternal slumber. For this reason, the Hayabusa Ninja Clan guards the statue with their lives. They do not dare to imagine the hell unleashed if the Demon statue ever fell into the wrong hands...

[edit] Chapter 1 - Sky City Tokyo

Special Agent Sonia appears at the door of the tiny shop run by master swordsmith Muramasa amidst the skyscrapers of Tokyo. She inquires after the Ninja Ryu Hayabusa, his whereabouts a mystery. She brings news of a terrible danger facing the world, bearing a message that must reach Hayabusa at any cost. As night falls, the evil Black Spider Clan emerges from the shadows to infest the streets of this unsuspecting city.

[edit] Chapter 2 - The Castle of the Dragon

The shadow of the Black Spider Clan reaches Hayabusa Village. They hunt for the Demon Statue, the key to resurrecting the Archfiend. Only Joe Hayabusa, his body still mending from his last battle, stands between them. Genshin, leader of the Black Spider Ninja Clan, faces his longtime rival in a fateful duel. As the Castle of the Dragon burns, the otherworldly Elizebet smiles coldly. The seal binding the Demon Statue is broken

[edit] Chapter 3 - Thunderclap of Catastrophe

The graceful Alexei, one of the Four Greater Fiends, appears in the skies over New York, raining lightning upon the streets of the proud city. Ryu Hayabusa arrives in Manhattan in search of Elizebet, who escaped from Hayabusa Village with the Demon Statues. The Fiends have already begun transforming New York into a Fiend Realm. Ryu’s battle begins as the thunder and laughter of the Greater Fiend echo throughout the city.
