Ninja Gaiden 3 has received its first downloadable content package, available as a bundle or as a selection of paid and free downloads. They include weaponry missing from the main game, and items for the multiplayer mode. 

Metal Claws for multiplayer, new Ninja Trials missions, and character customization items can all be bought separately or as a full set for $9.99 (800 MS Points). Free downloads include the Falcon's Talons for the story mode, a new multiplayer map, and a raised level cap. On PS3, the freebies will be automatically patched in, while Xbox 360 users will need to download the Ninja Pack 1 Lite item. 

On April 24, a new difficulty level will be available, Ultimate Ninja. It'll be free for a month.
