At E3, Team Ninja publicly revealed a few details on Ninja Gaiden 3 this week. The game will have two multiplayer modes — a cooperative one and a competitive mode — for up to 8 players. Ninja Gaiden 3 will also allow you to download new challenges, characters and missions when you connect online.


As far as the story is concerned, Team Ninja are remaining rather tight-lipped. The antagonist of Ninja Gaiden 3, they say, is a masked man — presumably the one in the trailer — whose motivations and goals are unclear. Ryu will apparently find himself undergoing a few changes during the course of the game, and you’ll get to learn more about his past.


Ninja Gaiden 3 is in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U, and is currently slated for an early 2012 release.
