Ninja Gaiden 3 debuts with a bloody new trailer

If you like blood and ninjas, then you are in luck! Tecmo Koei have released an ultra bloody, although somewhat vague-ish teaser to announce the coming of a new Ninja Gaiden game, tentatively titled Ninja Gaiden 3–not to be confused with the NES title Ninja Gaiden 3: The Ancient Ship of Doom, a title that could make a peace loving monk swear violent curses out of frustration.

The third title of the new Ninja Gaiden games is promised to be truly unveiled at E3 this year, but with GDC this week, Tecmo Koei have released this teaser to get people talking. The game promises to explore Ryu’s humanity while surrounded by demons, as the ninja fights his way through Hell. It has also been suggested that the new Ninja Gaiden will be designed to introduce the series to a new generation of fans, and to do so there will be an easier mode of the game. Fear not fans of pain, there will also be a difficulty option that will make fans scream. For those that haven’t played a Ninja Gaiden game, they have always been infamous for actively wanting you to lose. They are not easy games, nor does the developer Team Ninja make any apologies for the countless controllers that gamers have snapped in anger.

No word on a possible release date, but expect more details this summer. For now enjoy the pretty, and very gory teaser which shows pretty much nothing, but is still pretty cool.

Goat Simulator 3: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Three goats near a waterfall.

For a brief moment, simulators were the hottest thing in the gaming world. There have been long-running series like Farming Simulator and Train Simulator, but for whatever reason, the genre boomed with even more simulation titles that tried to capitalize on the satisfaction people had playing these games that allowed them to do different tasks and jobs as accurately as possible. However, as with anything successful, parodies came fast and strong. We got things like Surgeon Simulator, Granny Simulator, and even I Am Bread, where you play as bread trying to get toasted. The peak of this absurd, physics-based simulation sub-genre was the ridiculous Goat Simulator.

Originally just a joke, Goat Simulator was not only released as a full game but also got multiple expansions and DLC packs that took your titular goat through mockeries of other game tropes and genres. No one expected it to get as big as it did, and certainly no one saw it coming back for more, and yet Coffee Stain has returned, not with Goat Simulator 2, but jumping straight to Goat Simulator 3. If you're ready for the most extensive, least realistic goat simulation game ever made, here's everything we know about Goat Simulator 3.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3: Release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Xenoblade Chronicles 3's protagonist Noah wields a glowing sword.

While the Wii didn't have many JRPGs in its library, one that stood out for being one of the generation's best was the ambitious Xenoblade Chronicles. It took a long time for a sequel to eventually come to the Nintendo Switch, though the company made up for it by remastering the original game and offering it bundled with the sequel to get any fans who missed out on the original a chance to catch up on the world. Those plans now make more sense because they were building up to the next entry in the franchise.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was announced during the Nintendo Direct in February 2022, sending fans into a whirlwind of excitement. The announcement came out of nowhere, catching everyone off guard -- but in the best way possible. The new title isn't tied directly to the previous two entries; instead, they are set in parallel worlds or times. The setup is a little complex but worth the investment for how well-crafted these games are, both narratively and mechanically. If this is your first dive into the world of Aionios -- or your third -- here's everything we know about Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
