The Ninja Gaiden series has never been one to shy away from violence, and Ryu's third adventure looks to be no different. This installment will, however, allow Ryu to spare the lives of his attackers if he so decides. Team Ninja wants to humanize Ryu more than he has been in the past with Ninja Gaiden 3, but there is still going to be a lot of blood.

The latest screens offer some insight into Ryu's cursed arm, which causes him more pain and agony the more he kills. The images are from levels that take place in Dubai as Ryu fights new enemies, the Alchemist Forces.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is set for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 early next year. A Wii U version is planned, but no release date has been announced.
