Stabby ninja blood-blood: Ninja Gaiden 3 screenshots

Here are a few new screenshots for Ninja Gaiden 3, showing off a little more of the multiplayer mode, as well as some single-player stuff. Despite the game retracting its gore compared to past chapters, there’s still plenty of claret getting spilled, so fans of violence ought to be satiated. 

The multiplayer is really interesting to me. I see no way it can happen without becoming a chaotic mess of hacking and slashing, but if Team Ninja embraces that and just focuses on being a balls-out, incomprehensible mess, they could get away with it on audacity’s merit. 

Either way, I think this game’s going to really conflict the fanbase when it launches next year. Should be highly interesting.
