The folks behind poorly received action game Ninja Gaiden 3 tried too hard to make it appeal to Western tastes, says Yosuke Hayashi, head of developer Team Ninja, the studio behind the game.
You might be wondering what Tecmo Koei's got up its corporate sleeves after Ninja Gaiden 3 chopped its way release earlier this year. Well, it's a good thing that E3's right around the corner so that we can find out.
Our Ninja Gaiden 3 review has been updated to include a brief overview of the current multiplayer experience.
I sat down with my katana and PS3 controller recently to play Ninja Gaiden 3. In addition to pausing the game every so often to act out my favourite moves, I put together this video showcasing what Ninja Gaiden 3 has to offer.

Details about Ninja Gaiden 3's Collector's Edition came through a whole back but Tecmo's finally seen fit to show everyone what it looks like. As mentioned before, you'll get a two-figure Duel of the Masked set and a downloadable demo from Dead or Alive 5, the upcoming entry in Tecmo's fighting game series. There's a soundtrack CD and art book in there, too.

Tecmo's been teasing out the specifics of his next outing for a bit and finally passed along word of when we'll be able to play as the viciously gifted shadow warrior.
Look, if you don't want to be on the receiving end of Ryu Hayabusa's Dragon Sword, don't join an anti-ninja mercenary force, "mate". That said, it looks like even the star of Ninja Gaiden 3 is dealing with the psychological impact of spilling so much blood from katana-fodder of past Ninja Gaiden games.
If you wanted to fast track your way to an RC rating in Australia, usually gratuitous amounts of video game dismemberment was the most efficient way to go. Now that we're on the cusp of receiving an R18+ rating in Australia, Team Ninja has claimed that the latest entry into the Ninja Gaiden series - previously a repeat offender when it comes to unnecessary gore - will no longer feature any dismemberment of any kind.
