Futo shows off his skills!

Eidos was kind enough to send over two brand new videos of their upcoming Wii action title Mini Ninjas for everyone to enjoy.

Below is the snippet of information that came with the videos that sets up the action taking place in each of them.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Eidos have released new videos for the September 8th release videogame, Mini Ninjas, developed by Io Interactive.

Meet Futo, the largest of the mini ninjas, who almost missed his calling. Stronger, but a bit slower than his friends, he was unable to perfect his skills with the sword or shuriken. His master almost gave up on his training…. until he took up the hammer, which puts his strength to good use.

His master wrote a haiku, celebrating his own unique skills:

Futo, slow but strong

A big heart wins the battle

He wields a hammer

In today’s new videos, you will find a vignette, introducing Futo’s background and training, as well as a gameplay video showcasing Futo’s skill with his weapon of choice to free the woodland animals from the evil warlord’s spell. Futo’s best friend, Hiro, makes a cameo at the end, using his own ninja methods to best an enormous samurai boss.

We'll have more information on Mini Ninjas as it becomes available, as well as a full review when the game is released.
