Japan’s Nikkatsu Corporation (through their Sushi Typhoon label) is looking to cash in on the “___ versus ___” genre with Alien vs Ninja, set 400 years in the past, when ninjas saved us from the alien horde. You read about that in your history textbooks too, right?
The gory trailer is below (not as gory as Tokyo Gore Police or RoboGeisha, but still pretty gory for a trailer). Here’s the official synopsis, via AffenheimTheater:
Once upon a time in Japan, there was a band of great Ninja warriors led by Yamata called Iga Ninja. One day they witness a flash in the sky and a roaring giant ball of fire crashes into the distant forest. The warriors rush into the deep woods in an attempt to identify the mysterious fireball. There, instead of finding predictable enemies, they are stunned to face never-seen-before creatures with claws and fangs, the aliens!
When will people ever learn to run away from the mysterious fireball from the sky? Anyway, If you ever wondered what happened to those editors from the 1990’s who used EXTREME stencil font with varying sized letters, they’re all working for Sushi Typhoon now. Or they’re buried in my crawlspace. Radical!
