Launching earlier this year, Ninja Gaiden 3 was met with a lot of well deserved criticism from our very own Alex Osborn in his review. Calling it ‘the epitome of disappointment’, he gave the game a 2.5/10, very low for a game in a well respected franchise.
After both critical and commercial disappointment, it looks as though Team Ninja will be giving us another version next year in the form of Ninja Gaiden 3 Sigma. A listing from Amazon France has the game for both PS3 and Xbox 360, giving it a March 5th, 2013 release date.
No other information is given in the product description, though with the better critical reception of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge on the Wii U, expect Sigma 3 to be along those same lines.
If this listing does turn out to be true, it will be the second Ninja Gaiden Sigma game scheduled for 2013 as Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus 2 will be coming to the PS Vita in early 2013.
