Tecmo Koei Sneaks Free DLC into Ninja Gaiden 3
Posted by Sammy Barker
If you’re still furious about Capcom’s Street Fighter X Tekken DLC plans, then here’s something to lighten your mood: publisher Tecmo Koei has announced that it is to release a batch of free DLC for the upcoming Ninja Gaiden III.
Revealed in Famitsu magazine [via Andriasang], the post-release goodies will include two new weapons and two new stages for multiplayer. Meaty stuff, then.
The new weapons include the Eclipse Scythe and the Moukinsou. The former is a giant scythe, while the latter augments protagonist Ryu Hayabusa with lethal claws to his arms and legs. Naturally, while the scythe is slow and powerful, the claws are quick and nimble.
As previously alluded, the additional DLC packs will add new stages to Ninja Gaiden 3’s Clan Battle online multiplayer mode. One stage will take place in a desert themed locale, while the other is set in a, er, submarine. You might not know this, but submarines are actually a common battleground for ninja clans.
There’s no release date for the content yet, but it’s expected shortly after the game’s release.
