Tecmo Koei has lifted the lid on a brand new entry in the Ninja Gaiden series during a behind-closed-doors event in Tokyo today.
According to early reports, Ninja Gaiden 3 will be handled once again by Team Ninja, marking the first instalment in the franchise to be churned out following the departure of series creator Tomonobu Itagaki.
Details are sketchy at present, though word around the web has it that players can expect to see a “more human side” to protagonist Ryu. Despite this, expect the usual barrage of blood and guts, as it’s also claimed Ryu will up the ante in terms of violence, with a “decent into a hellish realm.”
No info was given in regards to platforms or a release date, but we’ll keep you updated on any developments.
