Swordgirls of SHINOBI THE WIDE

These beautiful character design illos are from the 2003 video game artbook Shinobi THE WIDE.

This sleeve-slinging swordgirl is ‘Ageha.’ I’m digging the flapper sensibilities of her hair and make-up.

You can see the rest of this long-out-of-print book here.

    The PS2 reboot of the Shinobi series is chiefly notable for having the hero Hotsuma wearing armguards with articulated kunai mounted on them, and a 20-foot red scarf that follows his movements. Legend has it that latter was created when one of the programmers said the original normal-length one looked silly and so one of the others made it enormous as a joke and they loved how it looked.
