Watch Us Play Extra: Ninja Gaiden 3

Oh, there will be blood.

We're back with another extra episode of Watch Us Play. We just received our review copy of Ninja Gaiden 3 in the mail today, so I figured I'd crack it open and record the game's opening moments with some supplementary commentary.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is the first game in the series not directed by Tomonobu Itagaki. Without delving too deep into the controversy, Itagaki had a falling out with Tecmo and left Team Ninja behind to pursue other gaming outlets. This left the Ninja Gaiden property in Team Ninja's hands to pick up and carry as they saw fit. What we got from that is what you see below — Ninja Gaiden 3

Before you fire up the video, let me first provide a bit of a disclaimer. This game is gory as shit. There is literally blood everywhere, so you might want to hold off watching until you're out of work or the kids have gone outside to play. In Itagaki's absence, it seems Team Ninja wanted to take the franchise is an even bloodier direction and, impressively, they succeeded in that respect. 

Enjoy the bloodshed. Oh, and the save falcon…
