An RPG big enough for a man—but you get to play it as a hot chick!Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja is a roguelike RPG for the Nintendo DS published by Atlus. A young ninja named Izuna is looking for a place to find home after her clan's old master fired them, believing ninja no longer have a place in the modern world. They eventually settle on an out-of-the-way village, when Izuna's "grandboss", Gen-an, wanders into one of the local caves. In the process of rescuing him, she manages to make several gods very angry, and has to retrieve several magical orbs to help the now-cursed natives from various afflictions and bring them back to normal.While the game has received middling reviews (praised for its quirky characters and storyline, but criticized for not utilizing the DS' features to their full potential), it gained a decent enough cult following to receive a sequel, entitled Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns.Izuna and Shino have also made cameo appearances as Secret Characters in Rondo of Swords and Windy X Windam, two other games developed by Success Corp.
