The game's release window was confirmed by Team Ninja head, Yosuke Hayashi, at an event in San Francisco overnight. Joystiq was around to catch the news.

New additions to Ninja Gaiden 3 include a controversial "Easy" mode, which Team Ninja hopes will pull newcomers into the series. But as Joystiq hypothesises, the game's still likely to be proper hard.
