Ninja Gaiden 3 screens appear online

A handful of blood-soaked screens for Tecmo's upcoming Ninja Gaiden 3 have made their way online, courtesy of Famitsu.

Unlike the tame graphical nature of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2--which reduced the level of gore versus Ninja Gaiden 2's ultra-violent approach--Ninja Gaiden 3 seems to be back on the transfusion train.

According to Andriasang, Ryu will gain a number of new abilities throughout the adventure, including wall climbing. Also, Ryu's right arm will have a "central" role in the game. Other than that being his go-to sword swinging limb, the screens make it look like his arm is possessed or infected.

Famitsu indicates that Ninja Gaiden 3 is planned for a 2012 release on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Check out Famitsu for all of the screens. Tecmo plans to reveal more Ninja Gaiden 3 info during E3 20111.
