Sun, sand and severed limbs seem to be on the agenda as new Ninja Gaiden 3 screenshots are released. The shots show series protagonist Ryu Haybusa battling the new ‘Alchemist Forces’ in modern Dubai, while simultaneously trying to overcome the unbearable pain of his newly cursed arm. Team Ninja promise the game will deliver a “more personal connection” to Hayabusa as players can choose whether to kill or grant mercy to their enemies. Judging by the amount of claret splattered around the screens though, there seems to be far less mercy and much more murder.
Ninja Gaiden 3 is scheduled to release in 2012 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Get sharpening those blades.
