As expected, a new Ninja Gaiden 3 trailer came out at E3 2011, but with it was an unexpected surprise: a timetable for the game's release date. According to the hot-off-the-Final-Cut video, Team Ninja's highly acclaimed Ninja Gaiden 2 sequel is gearing up for an early 2012 launch. Surprisingly, the game is so far only confirmed for Xbox 360.
Ninja Gaiden 3 is set in London, after main character of the series, Ryu Hayabusa is summoned by an unknown enemy for a major showdown. The trailer reveals little more than the fact that this game looks set to be bigger in scope than the previous entries in the series.
