Ninja Gaiden 3 will release on Xbox 360 and PS3 in March 2012, with a Wii-U version following after, Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi has revealed.
Joystiq also got its hands on a number of bloody screenshots for the game's new multiplayer mode. They show off character customisation, unlockable special moves and gory four-player fights. You can also stab yourself - not even to get an enemy behind you, you can just stab yourself... just because.
We can't help but think of ninja Power Rangers when we see all the multi-coloured characters though.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma is also confirmed for release on the PlayStation Vita in February in Japan, but there's no word on a European release date yet.
