140w ago - Today Team Ninja have officially announced Ninja Gaiden 3 at TGS 2010, reportedly to be released on both Microsoft's XBox 360 console and Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
Team Ninja will once again handle development on the title, the first in the series since series creator Tomonobu Itagaki left the company.
Not much else was revealed as to what to expect from the sequel, but it's thought we're going to see a "more human side" to main character Ryu.
To quote: "Attending a behind-closed door reveal earlier today, the image of Ryo Hayabusa holds secrets of the game to come. Ryu is pulling off his mask to represent a more human side to the series' protagonist and the idea that players will discover more about him.
Ryu also has blood on his face, representing a more violent and bloody experience to Ninja Gaiden 2.
You can also see a reflection of a person in Ryu's eye, perhaps suggesting an inner darkness which he is trying to contain - the likelihood is this darkness will manifest itself with new abilities.
The flames represent Ryu's descent into a hellish realm and the hell he plans to unleash on his foes.
We've also noticed something peculiar looking under the right eye that looks too specific to be just a blood smear."

"Ryu also has blood on his face, representing a more violent and bloody experience to Ninja Gaiden 2"
Seems like if you are not a fan of blood, than this new game might not be for you What was good about sigma 2 was the extra playable characters. Sadly i was devastated when i found out i couldn't play them the whole story mode, just online.
personally i'm hoping for better severing physics. Perhaps to the point where you can cut off limbs wherever the sword is, like the new MGS game.
