Blood-splattered sequel gets updated release window; now scheduled to arrive at the beginning of next year.
LOS ANGELES--Earlier today at Nintendo's E3 2011 media briefing, Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge emerged for the just-announced Wii U. That game didn't get a release date, but Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers eager to play Ninja Gaiden 3 now have a more specific release window to zone in on.
As Tecmo Koei promised in February, the company talked further about Ninja Gaiden 3 at E3 2011 today. The publisher narrowed the release window for the title, saying it will now arrive in early 2012. Previously, the game was pegged to debut sometime in 2012.
This latest installment in the series developed by Team Ninja casts players again as "super ninja" Hayabusa. Through the game, players will learn what motivates him to "fight, defend, and kill."
First unveiled at TGS 2010, Ninja Gaiden 3 will feature close-combat fighting, online multiplayer, and both cooperative and multiplayer experiences. For more on the title, check out GameSpot's most recent preview of Ninja Gaiden 3.
I'm going to get this Game, Ninja Gaiden for NES was one of the first games I finished in my gaming life, of course there were no trophies to prove it but I remembered well since you couldn't save any progress...
Looks a lot more like NG1 gameplay than NG2. I loved NG2 as well but this is for the better probably.
PixelAddict do some self-test 1st before commenting cus last time I checked blood spattered lol Not like Bill Cosby's Jello pudding pops! :p
Disclaimer: I don't know what a LOT of blood coming out of a person looks like.... But still. Why does Ninja Gaiden's blood look so watery and fake? Every kill looks like the equivalent of a blood-filled water balloon.
Is the article hinting that NG:3 will be a Wii U launch title? I may be stretching it a bit, but I hope so!!
"he publisher narrowed the release window for the title, saying it will now arrive in early 2012. Previously, the game was pegged to debut sometime in 2012. " Ok?
every other ninja gaiden IP "i mean xboxb ninja and PC ninja gaiden" sucked only this one was good soo i'm interested as always :)
I'm a huge Ninja Gaiden fan and I'm 50/50 on this. I'm not liking what I've seen so far. I'll keep my eyes on this, expecting the worst but hoping for the best.
