Tecmo Koei Outlines First Free DLC For Ninja Gaiden 3

Downloadable content is good. Free downloadable content...? That's much better.

While Tecmo Koei has paid DLC planned for their upcoming action extravaganza, Ninja Gaiden 3, they intend to deliver four free pieces of extra content right off the bat.

Famitsu.com threw up some screenshots and baseline details for this freebie content; you can see all the screens over at Andriasang. The DLC includes a couple new weapons (the Eclipse Scythe, slow but with a long reach and big power, and the Moukinsou, claw weapon attached to hands and feet; wicked fast), as well as a couple new Clan Battle Stages. Both the Desert and Submarine stages will be available for use in the game's online multiplayer mode, which supports up to eight players.

We just don't know when this free content will arrive, although we assume it won't be long after the game's launch. Ninja Gaiden 3 is slated to hit Japan on May 22. Here's hoping a North American date isn't far behind.

Im glad they're not ignoring fans who expect Ryu to wield more than just a katana. I'm pretty excited for Tuesday =)

"Free DLC" eh?

Or is this just a way to placate irate gamers who feel they're being robbed? It wouldn't be all that hard to say, "let's lock away this content on the disc that was intended to be part of the game anyway, but we'll use this as a soft intro to our paid DLC we already have in the pipeline, content already on the disc just locked away"

It's pretty crazy seeing youTube vids online of all of SFxTekken's "DLC" content accessed via hacking straight from the retail disc. I watched Lei, Dudley, Elena, and many others, complete with intros and all, extracted straight from the retail copy. So it's not DLC at all then, is it? ... a new name needs to be made for this.. .. locked away content... yes, LAC.
Because, really, you're not downloading any content at all, at least when it comes to Capcom.

Hahahah! LAC? I like it. So the DLC characters are complete? I thought it was like on the MvsC3 when the the characters were there but very incomplete.

Now I wonder how much money they are going to sell those characters locked on the disc.

It's pretty smart to let some out free so the blow of immediate paid DLC isn't as harsh.

Wait a moment! Those weapons aren't new, we had them in NGS 2 (under a different name mind you).

Oh well at least they're STILL free.

Everywhere I see says Ninja Gaiden 3 comes out next Tuesday the 20th.Now I'm confused. I preordered it. Walmart, BestBuy and everywhere have that date. Even the main site does as well. Is everyone wrong?

Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
