Rumour: Ninja Gaiden 3 to have 8-player modes, PS Move support, blood

Thursday, 26th May 2011 02:53 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Apparently some lucky subscribers have found a Ninja Gaiden 3 info dump in the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, with lots of delightful details and one motion-control shaped surprise.

Discussion of the magazine’s preview fired up on NeoGAF, while Gaming Shogun has posted what appears to be a couple of images of the feature.

Multiple sources have OPM reporting 60 frames per second, competitive and co-operative multiplayer for up to eight players, and an uncompromising difficulty level – contrary to comments on the game’s increased accessibility.

Weapons are said to be upgraded over time rather than through a store as in previous games, and there will be more emphasis on Ryu’s journey.

The game “may” feature PS Move support – but looks exceedingly likely to feature copious amounts of blood.

The OPM website makes no mention of Ninja Gaiden coverage in the current issue, but does have some other heavy-hitters which could squeeze it off the front page.

Ninja Gaiden 3 has not been dated beyond a vague 2012. It’s expected on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and should be highlighted at E3.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Thank god for the return of blood. I loved it in NG2 and was worried that Sigma team might influence this one with their pink and purple rays instead of fun blood and gore.

    naaah i doubt there will be as much blood as there was on ninja gaiden 2.

    ninja gaiden sigma 2 has no blood at all compared to ninja gaiden 2

    They will probably dumb it down to the levels of GoW/DI, more so seeing as how there ‘s a possibilty of Move support.
