Now it would be reasonable to think to yourself "whoah - Tribute's presentation has gone downhill since Mercenary Kings and Curses N Chaos, but before Tribute made their mark with Mercenary Kings, now-company-president Jonathan Lavigne put together NES-esque Ninja Senki as a kind of proof of identity. Ninja Senki DX is the polished-up super-edition of that five-year-old game.
So yeah. Ninja Senki might be the classicy platformer I've been waiting for since Shovel Knight.
Of course, any time I think of Tribute, I think of the fact that Mercenary Kings was announced for Vita, but never actually came to Vita. Well, I'm not the only one...
