Ninja Gaiden 3 Box Art

This game was released on March 23, 2012 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is an upcoming sequel to the Ninja Gaiden series which follows the protagonist, Ryu Hayabusa, as he hacks and slashes his way through hordes of enemies. It takes place after the events of Ninja Gaiden II and is said to explore Ryu’s human side and reveal the person behind the mask.

Ninja Gaiden games are known for being notoriously difficult, but NG3 features a new Hero mode which allows more casual players to sail through the game thanks to automatic blocking and evading. Hardcore gamers needn’t worry, however – there’s still the “Master Ninja” mode for those who enjoy a challenge.

Another interesting addition to NG3 is the online multiplayer. It includes both competitive (4 vs 4 Team Deathmatch and Battle Royale) as well as co-op modes.
