The trailer released today for Ninja Gaiden 3 is several things. It’s action packed, it’s over in the blink of an eye and it’s bloody. Above all else though, it is very, very brutal. Our hero Ryu Hayabusa has never been a saint, but he’s severing people right and left in a display so gruesome it looks as if there are geysers of blood around him. That’s the good stuff. This is Ninja Gaiden 3 and it is for real.
The trailer also gives us a short look at what is probably the game’s main antagonist, some fruitcake with a saber and a white mask. Yeah, Ryu would definitely decapitate him. We’ve also got an invaluable tidbit of info: a release window. The game will be available early next year on HD consoles. That’s all we get for now. I’m going to rape the replay button on that video, which you’ll need to hit the break to view.
