Ninja Gaiden 3 Screenshots Show Online Modes

Few details too

If I have learnt one thing during my time as a Newshound, it's that Tecmo KOEI don't just release a handful of screenshots – they try to drown us in the new media. The latest batch of screenshots for Ninja Gaiden III are not an exception. We have 30 new screenshots for you, starting with two previews of the game's locations:

9/12 Location 1

9/12 Location 2


The campaign introduces several notable NPCs to players as Ryu romps around London in his bid to thwart a terrorist attack. Here we have Cliff and Mizuki, two of Ryu's allies:

9/12 Cliff

9/12 Mizuki


A blond bombshell named Lovelace also seems to play a significant part in the game. She seems to be very friendly with Ryu's enemy, the Regent of the Mask:

9/12 Lovelace 1

9/12 Lovelace 2

9/12 Lovelace 3


Talking of the Regent of the Mask, here are a few new screenshots of the mysterious enemy. Although he is obviously connected to the events of the game, his motives still remain as unclear as his real identity.

9/12 Regent of the Mask 2

9/12 Regent of the Mask 3


We couldn't show you screenshots of the campaign without providing some of Ryu in action. I'm afraid that there isn't much blood though.

9/12 Campaign 3

9/12 Campaign 4

9/12 Campaign 5


The game's multiplayer modes have finally been showcased for the first time. 1Up managed to get their hands on a preview version of the game and have shed some light on the things that gamers can expect. Two modes were on display. Up to eight ninjas can take to the arena in a game of Clan Battle (team deathmatch) or Battle Royale (deathmatch).

Points are awarded for pulling off certain attacks or kills. Extra points are also rewarded for completing certain bonus tasks, which bear more than a slight resemblance to the contracts found in Call of Duty: Black Ops. One such task involved performing a "ghost kill". Here players have to nudge the analog stick to walk, rather than run; this enables players to enter an invisible mode and trigger a single surprise attack.

If things are going particularly badly, players are also able to commit harakiri, a form of ritual suicide involving the cutting of the stomach.

9/12 Harikiri 2


Finally, players will be able to customise the appearance of their multiplayer persona. Here is a quick preview of the customisation menus:

Ninja Gaiden III is due to be released in March 2012.

Fair play... these shots look awesome, and the multiplayer element is interesting to say the least. Won't be buying it on day of release though as I found the last game too difficult. Some people may laugh at that, I think of myself as being a better than average gamer but still... they know how to make a game difficult. B, E, A, UTIFUL though!

Though the MP looks like it, I doubt it will be, Tenchu was more stealth based, Ninja Gaiden is more, kill now with a bit of added kill some more.

Can I ask.. Is tenchu Z worth renting? I loved the originals but Tenchu Z screens never looked appealing?

Can get repetitive hear and there though. Fairly easy achievements, and lots of customization. It's a good game and one of my older favorites ... i so wish they made another one :(

As for the topic, screens look good. I'm slightly interested in the multiplayer, i can see it being pretty good if done correctly
I will protect you, no matter the cost!

I really hope that the insane difficulty from NGII is maintained in this game. I love games that frustrate you endlessly, because it's so much more satisfying when you beat it. Heck, beating just a small gauntlet on MNM in Ninja Gaiden II was immensely satisfying. I also hope that multiplayer's presence is as minimal as possible in NGIII, not just in-game, but achievement wise too.
