There are rumors that the next God of War will boast a multiplayer feature, and we know Ninja Gaiden III will definitely include the option.

Project lead Yosuke Hayashi told PlayStation: The Official Magazine that NGIII will offer gamers a "complex multiplayer mode." He didn't really go into details, but he did add that fans would see a "more sinister Ryu," and the new adventure will "delve more deeply into his feelings." He went on to talk about the violence:

"We are trying to take the violent concepts even deeper and make people realize how it feels to actually kill someone and what it is to actually gut someone. It's very important to us that people realize that violence is not only about blood and gore."

Then he talked about making the game more accessible; while he understands the hardcore fans' feelings regarding the difficulty, the developers are "taking a slightly different approach" to the challenge this time around. The game won't necessarily be easier, per se, but it'll be "a more exciting game that can be enjoyed by anyone." There's even the hint of PlayStation Move support…

But how do you feel about that multiplayer feature? Is it necessary? Are you interested?
