Ninja Gaiden 3 Gets Release Date And Collector’s Edition Detailed

Those who can’t wait another day before donning a mask and getting drenched in blood can finally rest easy knowing how long they have to wait. Ninja Gaiden 3 is hitting the States on March 20, 2012.

As with any major release these days, the game comes with a slew of its own pre-order bonuses. Pre-order at GameStop and you’ll get a demo for Dead or Alive 5 with Ryu Hayabusa and Hitomi. Pre-ordering the game on Amazon nets the same demo, but with characters Ayane and Hayate.

Or you could opt for the $100 collector’s edition of the game. Besides coming with the Dead or Alive 5 demo with all four characters, the collector’s edition will also include an art book, soundtrack CD and whatever a “Duel of the Masked” figure is. The collector’s edition will be available exclusively at GameStop.

Did I miss a memo or something? A lot of things are starting to be GameStop exclusive. I’m not a fan of this.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PS3, with a Wii U version planned at some point.

What say you, gamers? Are you as curious as I am to see what that figure looks like?
