Team Ninja are expanding on the Ninja Gaiden 3 experience with the second downloadable content pack available from today. The pack comes with a flurry of DLC items including the Eclipse Scythe for single player use and the Great Scythe to swing around in multiplayer modes.
Further, new equipment items, a new multiplayer stage and new Ninja Trial packs are available for download. To showcase the new downloadable content, Team Ninja have released a new trailer of the items in action:
The Eclipse Scythe is an additional weapon for Ryu Hayabusa to use in the story mode, as well as a new stage for the online multiplayer mode Clan Battle. All these are available as a free download and can be obtained as an automatic software update for the PlayStation 3 and as a downloadable Ninja Pack 1 Lite for the Xbox 360.
Additionally, players will be able to purchase downloadable content individually—Great Scythe for the multiplayer modes, new Ninja Trial packs for Acolyte, Mentor, Leader, Master difficulties and customization items—or players can purchase the complete set of DLC in Ninja Pack 2.
In terms of power, there is no match for the scythe aside from the true Dragon Sword. Due to its size, the scythe has a devastating swing arc which will easily cut through hordes of enemies. For larger enemies, and even incendiary shuriken blocks, the scythe will play to Ryu’s advantage in battle.
Get acquainted to your new weapons fast as the all-new free ‘Ultimate Ninja Pack’ with Ultimate Ninja difficulty will be available from April 24th, as well as an upcoming DLC pack on May 1st for players to master in both the real world and the shadow world.
