Developer Team Ninja Studio today released a multiplayer video vignette from the upcoming action title, Ninja Gaiden 3.

In chapter one of the title, Ruy Hayabusa returns to face an unknown terrorist group wreaking havoc in central London and meets with a mysterious masked man. Though this masked man, The Regent of the Mask, pushes Hayabusa to his limits, he must press forward to eliminate this growing threat.

Plagued by his past, the dark hero continues to be chased by the Black Spider Ninja Clan in this upcoming installment. The fearless Black Spider Ninja Clan returns to take down the Hayabusa Clan. Though the katana is their weapon of choice, many of the ninjas prefer to use Talons- an essential part of the Ninja’s weapon arsenal. This unique weapon is customized by gauntlets with large steel claws worn on the hands and feet.

The most recognizable attack from the clan is their use of Incendiary Shuriken. With these, the Black Spider Clan members grab Hayabusa and self-destruct. Resembling kunai knives, these are powered with black powder bombs and fuses and are designed to explode after being impaled into the target’s body.

Multiplayer offers up to eight players in various modes such as Battle Royale and Team Deathmatch along with a wide variety of ninja weapons and assaults. Each player will be able to customize their ninja assassin and develop their skills to unlock new features.

Ninja Gaiden 3 will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 22nd, 2012.
