's release is almost here. The launch trailer
has already blasted off, we've discovered that the game will require an online pass
, and just some of the many sweet screenshots
released for the game have shown us plenty of blood, gore and guts. In preparation for the game's imminent release, this is a good time to take a look at some newly released screens of upcoming DLC, which show off a couple of different weapons and clan battle stages.
The first weapon is the 'Eclipse Scythe': known for its long reach, the Scythe can tear through hordes of surrounding enemies with devastating results. The only downside to this weapon is the fact that it's heavy and can slow the player down:Eclipse Scythe
The second weapon is the 'Moukinsou': For those unfamiliar with the name, the weapon itself is a set of claws equipped to the characters arms and legs. These make for quick and relentless close range attacks on the enemy:Moukinsou
Screenshots have also been released for the game's upcoming four vs. four online clan battle mode. The screens show off characters battling each other in the desert and within a submarine in two separate stages:Desert
These pieces of DLC will be free
but remain without a solid release date. The full retail title, Ninja Gaiden III
, will be available for purchase on March 20th for North America, March 22nd for Japan, and March 23rd for Europe.
