Ninja Gaiden is a series of video games by Tecmo.Released in February 2004, the Xbox Ninja Gaiden contains no story elements from the NES trilogy, which essentially makes it a reboot of the Ninja Gaiden "universe". There is however a hint the story of the game is placed before the Ninja Gaiden trilogy. During the end of Chapter 1, Ryu and Murai discuss Ryu's responsibility of looking after his father's sword, the Dragon Sword. Murai asks if Ryu's father is still away, Ryu replies that he is and then explains that his father gave him the sword to look after it while he was away. Since Ryu's father is still presumed to be alive, the possibility of this game being a kind of prequel to the original Ninja Gaiden game trilogy is very likely. The game is also called "Ninja Gaiden" in Japan. Taking advantage of the advances in video gaming technology, Ninja Gaiden had evolved from a side-scrolling action game to a 3D game with a third-person view on the protagonist.
