Ninja Gaiden 3 gets Move support

Limber up.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is fully compatible with the PlayStation 3's Move controller, publisher Tecmo Koei has announced.

Quite how developer Team Ninja has managed to shoehorn motion controls into its turbo-paced slice 'em up has yet to be fully detailed.

"Ninja Gaiden 3 is all about slicing and chopping through flesh and bone and PlayStation Move brings players even closer to the game's protagonist Ryu Hayabusa. The game will be compatible with all Move peripherals and it will feature full compatibility with this exciting new hardware," commented Team Ninja boss Yosuke Hayashi.

Here's hoping the game ships with a free ice pack and a syringe full of cortisone.

Due out in early 2012, the impending threequel sees series mainstay Ryu Hayabusa pack up his swords and hop on a plane to London to chop up some terrorists. No, really.

Take a look at our recent Ninja Gaiden 3 preview for more details.
