Ninja Gaiden 3
Ninja Gaiden 3 Teaser Carves Into GDC

View author's profile

Tecmo and Team Ninja have brought a tantalising 'Gaiden Project' teaser to GDC 2011, revealng that the game will be officially unveiled at this year's upcoming E3 in June.

In the trailer, Ryu Hayabusa removes his katana from the camera, before standing upright, drenched in blood. He's reaches to remove his mask and then the video cuts to a message: 'Unmask E3 2011'.

That pretty much says it all really. Look out for more on what is being called 'Gaiden Project' at present - but what surely must be Ninja Gaiden 3 - at E3 2011 then. The game is apparently set to release sometime in 2012. Check out the teaser below.

Is his arm all "daemoned" up or just covered in Gore? Cannot wait for this, just hope it can keep the pace without itagaki at the reigns.

@8: NG2 is fun but achievements wise not so much. If you like hack n' slash with a bit more of a challenge then pick it up. It's probably really cheap too.

...I...CAN'T...WAIT!!! (not patiently anyway)

2012 is quite a wait, but I'm sure the time will be spent striving for a masterpiece-

@2 Not likely. They said the game is going to be easier in an interview already for more casual players.

Looks sick. I was a big fan of both Ninja Gaiden games, this is sure to be a day one purchase.

Actually the devs said the game would be more accesible, which doesn't mean easier. Sorry, nitpicking. Looks like a decent game though, I'm a sucker for games developed in Japan.

i must admit if its easier i would be kind of relieved. it would be nice to have a gaiden game where you feel badass as opposed to crying into your pillow because you cant make it to the next area in mentor mode and realising theres another difficulty waiting.

Its a shame im so shit at the 2nd one im actually terrible, i really like ninja games like that but i find it so hard and im quite impatient, i think im gonna try complete it for the 6th time (might get past the 3rd mission this time) because this game looks pretty cool already, but then again im easily amused :P

is that the blade of the archfiend in his hand? Maybe he has become a demon?

i love ninja gaiden, the first was pretty tough, but the second one made me wanna cry/kick my fuckin TV in tough. Seriously, only game i've ever lowered the difficulty level and start over in my life. pretty sure the games original designer doesn't work for Team Ninja anymore but should still be good.
