Ninja Gaiden 3 strikes March 20
Tecmo Koei dates action game, reveals $100 Collector's Edition featuring four-character Dead or Alive 5 demo, soundtrack, art book, and figure.
The first original Ninja Gaiden game since Tomonobu Itagaki departed series developer Team Ninja is almost here. Tecmo Koei today announced that Ninja Gaiden 3 will arrive in stores March 20 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Beyond the release date, Tecmo Koei confirmed plans for a Collector's Edition of Ninja Gaiden III, available exclusively at GameStop. The $100 bundle will include the game; a "Dual of the Masked" figure; art book; soundtrack CD; and a four-character demo of Dead or Alive 5, Tecmo's fighting game set for release later this year.
Gamers who preorder the standard version of the game from Amazon or GameStop will also get access to a Dead or Alive 5 demo, although it will be limited to two characters. The Amazon preorder demo features series regulars Ayane and Hyate, while GameStop's demo includes Ninja Gaiden star Ryu Hyabusa and Dead or Alive's Hitomi.
Ninja Gaiden 3 adds a few new elements to the series formula, including competitive and cooperative online multiplayer for up to eight players. The PS3 version of the game will also feature PlayStation Move support, which Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi has said is intended to "bring players closer to" Hyabusa.
A Wii U version, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, has also been announced, though it has no release window yet. For more on Ninja Gaiden 3, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
