The Online Pass codes for Ninja Gaiden 3 are now able to be redeemed following a problem which was preventing players from getting the most from their new purchase.

"We are aware of the issue with the Online Pass for Ninja Gaiden 3 and are working to resolve the issue," said Team Ninja on Facebook yesterday.

A few hours later the Facebook page added: "For those of you with the Xbox 360 version of Ninja Gaiden 3, please re-enter your code the online pass is now working."

And shortly after came confirmation that "the Ninja Gaiden 3 online pass is now redeemable on PlayStation 3". However, there remains an issue with the DOA 5 demo code included with the Ninja Gaiden 3 Collector's Edition - Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja is "working with Sony to resolve the issue".

We weren't overly impressed with the game, as you can see if you read our Ninja Gaiden 3 review.
