Ninja Gaiden 3 multiplayer makes Call of Duty look friendly

Things that go hack-and-stab in the night

Hey you, online shooter fan! I've got something for your face: a huge blazing ball of flame! Too late to commit harikari, my friend, and steal an honourable death from the jaws of defeat - the fires of my passion outstrip the swiftest sword. Oh damn, I've fallen off a roof.

Lifestyle trumps goth in the ninja fashion world.

Thus our canned impression of the Ninja Gaiden 3 multiplayer trailer below, a frolicsome affair in which blades emerge from ribcages, bodies fly through bamboo forests and men in pyjamas strike dashing poses - shortly before expiring in, say, a huge blazing ball of flame.

Also in Ninja Gaiden 3 multiplayer: unlockable special moves, character customisation, teleporting kills and some sort of aerial execution mechanic which resembles a slow-motion bellyflop. F'reals.
