Ryu’s back and there will (obviously) be blood – Ninja Gaiden 3 announced

Team Ninja have got Metroid: Other M out of the door, so it’s time they got back to their roots with Ninja Gaiden 3. Tecmo Koei announced the game at TGS today, revealing but a single image of a blood stained Ryu; business as usual, then.

Actually, it may seem simple at first glance, but there’s a lot going on in the picture; Ryu is getting ready to take off his mask and while we see a strange figure in the reflection of one of his eyes, there are flames in the other.

And that’s about it; we don’t know a release date, or platforms just yet. Of course this is the first original entry in the series without the guidance of one Itagaki, how will this affect the game?
