Tecmo Koei has announced that Ninja Gaiden 3 will hit stores on March 20. Plus, the publisher outlined bonuses that will come with the Collector's Edition and pre-orders of the game, including a demo for Dead or Alive 5.
GameStop and Amazon pre-orders will get a two-character DOA5 demo featuring different sets of duelers. GameStop will feature Ryu Hayabusa vs Hitomi, and Amazon will get Ayane vs Hayate. Picking up the Collector's Edition ($99.99) will net you a demo with all four characters, plus an art book, soundtrack CD, and a "Duel of the Masked" figure. The CE is a GameStop/EB exclusive.
"With Ninja Gaiden 3, Team Ninja has created a fresh new way to take players behind the mask of the world's greatest ninja, Ryu Hayabusa, where they must choose when to give mercy or wreak vengeance to learn what it means to be a dark hero," said Tecmo Koei senior VP and General Manager Amos Ip, in the announcement. "Our preorder packages at GameStop and Amazon and our massive Collector's Edition will give true fans their first chance to experience the unique fighting action of Dead or Alive 5 on day one when Ninja Gaiden 3 ships."

Tecmo Koei has announced a release date for Ninja Gaiden 3, along with pre-order and Collector's Edition details.
I was planning on pre-ordering this game, AND getting the CE. Since it is GameStop exclusive, count me out. I'll buy the standard version on month #2 when it is $20 less.
