We can't wait to try Ninja Gaiden III . It'll be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next year.

But what if we could take our slashing fun on the go? What if Ryu and his trusty sword landed on the most advanced portable gaming device available? Well, it might be possible: according to TheGamersHub , Tecmo Koei might be cranking on a Ninja Gaiden installment for the PlayStation Vita. This information came thanks to an "anonymous e-mail," which isn't exactly a confirmation and in fact, it holds very little validity on its own. We get lots of e-mails…if they come from anyone not directly involved with the industry, they're usually bogus. But then again, if it's a proven inside source, that's something else… We won't comment further without any concrete proof.

But we do know the Vita would benefit from a slick action title from this award-winning franchise. There's no doubt it'll be a hotly anticipated handheld title, if this rumor is proven true…
