Tecmo Koei has announced Ninja Gaiden 3 behind closed doors at the Tokyo Game Show today, creating the first all-new console Ninja Gaiden since Itagaki's departure from Team Ninja. So far, details about the game are thin on the ground, save for a teaser image and a few plot hints.
According to Tecmo, Ninja Gaiden 3 will set the scene for a "more violent" game, as if that were humanly possible. A darker scenario, more blood than ever before, and a humanized version of protagonist Ryu have all been promised. There are also hints that this game will hit both the Xbox 360 and PS3 at once, which is a nice change.
So there we are, a new Ninja Gaiden! But how will it fare with Team Ninja under new management? Feel free to speculate!
