Team Ninja has announced PlayStation Move support for the PS3 version of Ninja Gaiden 3, presumably enabling spirited swings and forceful bops in your offensive arsenal. Studio lead Yosuke Hayashi claims that it will "bring players even closer to the game's protagonist Ryu Hayabusa," which is a particularly unfortunate occurrence if you also happen to be a generic soldier, a demon, an evil ninja or ... anything that's alive, really.
Ninja Gaiden 3 is set to slice up PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners in early 2012. A Wii U version is also in the works.
This will be the first time the popular NINJA GAIDEN series hosts motion control and it will give players a new visceral edge when battling and slicing through their enemy's flesh and bone.
"We are really excited to announce this fantastic news at one of Europe's most prestigious game events that is Gamescom", stated the leader of Team NINJA Yosuke Hayashi. "NINJA GAIDEN 3 is all about slicing and chopping through flesh and bone and PlayStation Move bring players even closer to the game's protagonist Ryu Hayabusa. The game will be compatible with all Move peripherals and it will feature full compatibility with this exciting new hardware."
NINJA GAIDEN 3 will be available in early 2012 for MSRP US$59.99 on PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360®. Developed by Team NINJA, the game is currently rated ESRB "Rating Pending."
