|Mini Ninjas||The adventure game Mini Ninjas, developed by the danish folks at IO Interactive behind the Hitman games.
You play the young ninja Hiro, who sets out on a quest against the evil samurai, whom, with the help of dark magic, has transformed innocent cute little animals into samurai minions. Luckily, upon defeating these minions, they only go back to their original form. For smaller minions, be it a fox or a hen, and for bigger minions, be it a bear or a panda.
Gameplay involves chopping away with your sword, taking the form of animals and using ancient kuji magic to control the powers of nature.
