Ninja Gaiden 3 Receives Free Scythe and Claws DLC

March 15, 2012


Ninja Gaiden 3 is only days away from release and Team Ninja has decided to listen to some fan feedback prior to the game’s release. Ninja Gaiden 3 is meant to be played using only the Dragon Sword as the story revolves around that. However, fans have been crying to the heavens about the lack of weapons (meanwhile, the game is not even out yet and the backlash has been getting slightly out of control).

Team Ninja just announced that they will be providing post-release DLC that will bring the Scythe and Claw weapons from Ninja Gaiden 2 back into play…for free. The scythe and claws were pretty badass weapons to use in NG2 and here’s hoping that if they need to bring back one more weapon into the mix, it should be the Vigorian Flail. Regardless, this free DLC is a nice incentive to garner some more attention from fans, both those looking forward to the upcoming installment and those who are weary.

Ninja Gaiden 3 releases this Tuesday, March 20th for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
