After a weeklong delay, the expansion pack to Tecmo's acclaimed action game is now available.
Announced earlier this summer, the Ninja Gaiden Hurricane Pack will update the original game with a brand-new weapon, the boujutsu, and a menagerie of new enemies, including killer catwomen. The game will also introduce an updated gameplay mechanic and a new camera engine that will let players change their perspectives vis-à-vis their enemies.
The Hurricane Pack's new content will also provide the battleground for the second round of the Master Ninja Tournament, which began today. After registering on the tournament's official Web site, players will download the new content pack, play through the new challenge, and then post their final karma scores on a leaderboard. The player with the highest score will win a trip to the world finals, while the lowest scorers will receive complementary "Ninja Dog" T-shirts. To enter the tournament, players must have an active Xbox Live account.
