GDC 2011 kicks off today, and Team NINJA is starting the week off with a very brief -- but tasty -- teaser for Ninja Gaiden 3. Granted, the name doesn't actually pop up in the little trailer, but Ryu Hayabusa's bloody face and the "three" at the end pretty much it away.
Amusingly enough, the perspective in the video belongs to some unfortunate bastard being stabbed repeatedly by our masked protagonist. Yeah, looks like Ryu just ruined this guy's day something fierce.
Following the red "three" showing up at the end is simply "E3 2011," so Tecmo Koei pretty much just teased a game at GDC for E3. We're pretty sure they'll have more information or longer trailer by then, and not just another "check back later" type of notice. This will be Team NINJA's first project following Tomonobu Itagaki's departure.
Now, enjoy the bloodfest of a trailer. If your computer will explode at the 1080p setting, go ahead and drop it down to 720; we'll look the other way.
