Have you checked out the latest issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine?

If not, you're missing out on some new Ninja Gaiden III info. A few of those details have been summarized over in the NeoGAF forum and as you can see, they're awfully encouraging. We're loving that bit about a silky smooth 60 frames per second and of course, the blood will return…as if we couldn't guess based on early media. Furthermore, the magazine confirms both co-op and competitive multiplayer modes (one of which will support up to 8 players), and we'll see a "greater emphasis" on the storyline. For those of you familiar with the franchise, you might be annoyed to know the store is gone; weapons will upgrade over time. Well, maybe that's not a bad feature.

As for the PlayStation Move support, we'll file that under the "wait and see" category. But the last piece of news should be satisfactory to the hardcore gamers: apparently, the developers will not be toning down the difficulty for more mainstream appeal. So what say you, Ninja Gaiden fans?
