Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge announced for PS3 and Xbox 360



Tecmo Koei Europe has today announced that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The previously Wii U exclusive features additional playable characters, a new gameplay mode, a redesigned battle system with enhanced enemy AI for it's arrival on both consoles.

"Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is the most action-packed and feature rich Ninja Gaiden game ever created," said Yosuke Hayashi, Team Ninja leader. "The brutal combat will challenge the hardest of hardcore fans while also rewarding them with tons of bonus content and new features including three playable female characters, new stages, and three times as many Ninja Trial missions."

Tecmo says that the game has been designed from the ground up to satisfy core action fans with a redesigned battle system, improved enemy AI, the greatly reduced interactive QTE scenes, and the return of dismemberment. Even with severed arms or legs, enemies will fight on and players will find they have to change attacks on the fly to win brutally tough battles the challenge level leaves little room for error. The Ninja Skills systems lets players use Karma earned in combat to freely purchase weapon and Ninpo upgrades, feats, and costumes. Adding to the variety of gameplay, Kasumi, Ayane, and Momiji all join Hayabusa as playable characters. Ayane will get her own chapters in Story Mode while all three female characters can be played in the new Chapter Challenge mode and Ninja Trials co-op play with multiple costume options.

The online features in Razor's Edge have also been greatly expanded, with all the previously paid DLC from Ninja Gaiden 3 available as a bonus. The Ninja Skills upgrade system works online to let players use Karma to purchase 64 customizable features for the Unknown Ninja used in multiplayer Clan Battles. Supporting up to eight players, five brand new Clan Battle stages have been added.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is due for release on April 5 this year.

Hope they release this as DLC for Ninja Gaiden 3, so ppl who already own the game can get it without paying $40 or more

I hope so too, purchased Ninja Gaiden 3 Collectors edition and it would be nice to get it free, but I bet that will not happen, so DLC will be okay. The game was okay, had fun playing it once, but I don't think I will reply the game again, multi-player is fun too. If it is released as DLC I will consider getting it, if not, then there are many great games to enjoy.

Nintendo published Wii U exclusive now coming to PS3 and 360? Throws yet another question mark onto Bayonetta 2's exclusivity and no mistake...

I think ninja gaiden 3 was meant for ps3/xbox and wii u. but the reception it got with the ps3/xbox versions meant they had to change it for wii u. thus razors edge was born. now they are just fixing their mistakes i think But Bayonetta is sure fire Nintendo property since sega dropped it.

I'm surprised that Bayonetta 2 has been been only released on Wii U, was hoping that just as Bayonetta, it will be released on Playstation, it was a fun game, but I suppose, they would have have published the 2nd one without the help, not enough support have been received from Playstation nor Xbox to have it developed.

Um... actually the Bayonetta IP is still wholly owned by Sega, and there's no evidence Nintendo have any actual financial investment in the sequel's development, just that they are credited with getting the sequel greenlit. Ultimately there may be nothing Nintendo can do about it if Sega want a 360/PS3 version eventually.

The game and its apparent difficulty seem to throwback to those arcade games from the 80s-90s, designed to make you feel like you might have a chance at completing it, if you add another 20p in the slot (I never continued!). With any announcement of exclusivity, take it as its valid only on the day they tell you (as in the Wii U's exclusive!).

It's going to gave to be a massive improvement over the stock version of Ninja Gaiden 3 because that was awful. You could tell it fell under the stewardship of a new lead designer, it just didn't feel *right*. Still, if I do pick it up, it'll almost certainly be on Wii U anyway, just as something to play.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
