Team Ninja have released their second pack of DLC for Ninja Gaiden 3.
Items such as the Eclipse Scythe and Great Scythe, along with new equipment, a new multiplayer stage and new Ninja Trial Packs, are now available.
Players are now able to download the Eclipse Scythe, an additional weapon for Ryu Hayabusa to use in the story mode, as well as a new stage for the online multiplayer mode Clan Battle. All these are available as a free download and can be obtained as an automatic software update for the PlayStation 3 and as a downloadable Ninja Pack 1 Lite for the Xbox 360.
Additionally, players will be able to purchase downloadable content individually—Great Scythe for the multiplayer modes, new Ninja Trial packs for Acolyte, Mentor, Leader, Master difficulties and customization items—or players can purchase the complete set of DLC in Ninja Pack 2 .
In terms of power, there is no match for the scythe aside from the true Dragon Sword. Due to its size, the scythe has a devastating swing arc which will easily cut through hordes of enemies. For larger enemies, and even incendiary shuriken blocks, the scythe will play to Ryu’s advantage in battle.
