Ninja Gaiden 3: First details
The first Ninja Gaiden 3 details have arrived. At first glance it sounds like what youd expect; tons of blood, a solid 60fps framerate and Ryu slicing up soldiers in a dark rainy street, before climbing up the side of a wall with daggers.
In more good news for fans, Team Ninjas told OPM it wont be toning down the difficulty of the game for casual gamers.
Ninja Gaiden 3 is said to carry a larger emphasis on Ryus backstory, with no other playable characters planned at this stage.
In a further step towards building deeper story progression, the developers also axed the games weapon store, and Ryus tools will now upgrade as the game progresses.
More interesting are the developers plans for multiplayer; Team Ninja says the new game will support up to eight players in co-op and versus modes, and its even considering support for PlayStation Move.
Speaking with OXM earlier this year Hayashi promised that the third instalment in the gore-fest series will be a "paradigm shift", and wont repeat the over-familiar design some criticised in Ninja Gaiden 2.
