Turn off the Lights

Finally some gameplay for Ninja Gaiden 3

When it comes to Ninja Gaiden, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone more interested than me. Hayashi has been talking a lot about the game recently and now this is his chance to showcase what his team have been working on. They have been talking about how they want it to play completely different from previous games in the series and these videos seem to show that.

Quick Time Events seem overused right off the bat, using them in normal combat is not something that will go down well with fans of the series. However, the core combat does look extremely smooth and responsive, something that is essential to the Ninja Gaiden experience. The violent nature from Ninja Gaiden 2 is still here, apart from dismemberment that is, but the combat looks brutally satisfying to execute. The PS3 version is what is being shown, there is no word on whether that means anything as regards to what the lead platform is or if there is one at all. The main new addition is that of stealth sections, these look really fun and show off some neat looking stealth kill animations and finally make use of being able to walk instead of run. I will be doing a full feature analysis for the gameplay later in the week. Ninja Gaiden 3 is set for release in early 2012 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
