Ninja Gaiden III Details Surfaced.
Finally some details on the new Ninja Gaiden has surfaced. Project Lead Yosuke Hayashi has shared some information with Playstation: The Official Magazine, stating that Ryu Hayabusa is going to be a bit darker
“We are focusing Ryu as a dark Japanese hero. There won’t be new playable characters, but we’ll focus more deeply on Ryu Hyabusa’s life and lifestyle and feelings and thoughts.”
It would be interesting to see how ryu hayabusa deals with the guilt (if he has any) of the thousands and thousands of enemies he’s sliced up in the past couple of games. It’s game design is also going in a different direction, since the original director of the game, Tomonobu Itagaki is no longer with tecmo. They want to make the game a bit more approachable for everyone but it won’t necessarily mean that it’ll be dumbed down completely.
Ninja Gaiden III will be released on both Xbox 360 and PS3 with added multiplayer support.
