Murder is a burden in Ninja Gaiden 3's launch trailer


9:20 AM on 03.13.2012



Oh hey, Ninja Gaiden 3 is releasing soon. Why not look at this guilt-ridden trailer to celebrate? 

The launch trailer sets the tone for Team Ninja's slash 'em up sequel, and let's just say it's not the feelgood game of the year. Ryu's pretty miserable, since apparently you can't slaughter hundreds of people a day and walk away like nothing happened. I'm pretty interested to see where this whole "consequence" theme leads Ryu, at any rate. 

I'm maintaining some hope for this game, although a lot of people remain cynical. What side of the fence do you occupy? Are you excited for more Ninja Gaiden, or do you think this game will represent the death of the series, as some believe?

It'll hit the US on March 20, so you can find out then.
