Ninja Gaiden 3 Scans, and a Little Bit of Info....Including Multiplayer

Ninja Gaiden 3 Scans and Information Revealed in OXM and OPM. 

Here's a bit of info:

60 frames per second. 
Blood is back. 
Difficulty level won't be toned down for casual gamers. 
There will be both competitive and cooperative modes. One or both will support up to 8 players. 
The store is gone. Weapons will upgrade over time. 
Greater emphasis on Ryu's story. No other playable characters planned yet. 
May feature Move support."

So... competitive multiplayer. I'd love to jump for joy but if the real Team Ninja couldn't get it optimized for Black, their incredible masterpiece, I doubt this half assed TN will be able to pull of a coherent, balanced, as-minimal-as-possible-lag multiplayer experience. And if they mean 8 player for competitive as opposed to cooperative....well, it better be one vs. one round robins or something.....not an 8 player free for all. That might be fun in your head, but in reality it would be a fucking mess. 

We'll see I guess. 

As for Move support....more evidence that they are going to fuck this up, but again....we'll see.....

Oh, and they got rid of Muramasa's....assholes :( 



  1. So I'm guessing that the multi-player will be similar to Soul Calibur or something? I've always imagined a Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden multi-player with people fighting one on one but I don't think I've seen a game do that yet.

  2. I have no idea, they haven't released any specific details as of yet.
