It sure seems so. I'm getting my teeth kicked in and I'm good at the first two on warrior. Any unlockables for beating higher difficulties? I'm about to lower it.

I don't believe so. I played Ninja Gaiden Black on Xbox and it punished the hell out of me on Normal. I only had a hard time with a few of the bosses on this game (and, of course the black hooded alchemists). I'm playing through Hard now though and it seems like the same challenge level as Normal on Black.

As far as versions of Ninja Gaiden 3 go, yes it is.

It sure is.... especially if you want to beat the chapter challenges, you"ll need mad skills.

edit: sorry about that. I meant: Crystal Skull Challenges, not "chapter challenges".

IMO this normal is harder than NG2 Warrior or NG3 Normal. But NS Black or Sigma Normal was really the challenge.

I may be branded a coward but I'm pretty close to reverting back to hero mode. Even the first boss was giving me trouble and I never had this much difficulty with warrior on the first two. If there's nothing to unlock on higher difficulties why punish myself right?
